Record Book of Sin posted by John Sorensen on Mar 07, 2016
Have you ever had just a few minutes to share the Gospel?
Hi I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. When that happens to me, I will often use an illustration called “The Record Book of Sin.” So, let’s imagine that I am holding a book in my left hand, the hand represents me and God loves me, but the book represents my sin and God hates my sin and must punish it. To solve this problem, God sent his Son, Jesus. Now, imagine that my right hand represents Jesus. In Isaiah 53:6 we read, “All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way and the Lord has laid upon Him (Jesus) the iniquity (or sin) of us all.” At that point, I move the book from my left hand representing me to my right hand which represents Jesus. So my sins have been placed on Jesus.
You can watch a video demonstrating this powerful illustration, the “Record Book of Sin” on our website at ShareLife.today.
