Prosecutor: You deserve to die!
Prosecutor: Because the soul that sins shall die (Ezekiel 18:20).
Defendant: In that case, everyone must be punished for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
Prosecutor: You are absolutely correct!
Defendant: Isn’t there any way by which I can be saved?
Prosecutor: No, no other way. Unless the wages of sin is paid, there is no other way.
Defendant: But, what can equate the wages of sin; what can equate the penalty of death; what is it’s price?
Prosecutor: I know of none save one!
Defendant: What is it?
Prosecutor: It is the price of blood of a sinless person with an advanced payment of thirty pieces of silver!
Defendant: You are saying then, that I don’t stand a chance; in fact no one stands a chance because there is no one without sin; No one is sinless, correct?
Prosecutor: No that is not entirely true.
Defendant: What is not entirely true?
Prosecutor: What is true is that you are guilty of death; What is true is that you don’t stand a chance. What is true is that wages of sin is death. What is true is that you deserve death, but what is not true is that no one stands a chance, for there is One, Only One who was, is and will be sinless and that is Jesus Christ. He paid your penalty with the equitable price.
Defendant: So, what are you saying?
Prosecutor: You deserve to die, but you don’t have to, because Jesus paid the price for your Salvation and Redemption with His blood. You are free to go (and sin no more).
Defendant: Thanks be to God, for My Salvation’s Redemption Price (M.S.R.P), was My Savior’s blood and thirty pieces of silver.
Zechariah 11: 12-13 (KJV)
12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
13 And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.
Revelation 5:9 (KJV)
9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
