Hello, today my sister and I are doing our post together on Proverbs 24:23 which says:
“Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent,”
will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations.”
This is more from Solomon’s wise sayings; and it seems inevitable that whoever judges wrongly would be denounced and shunned. This is because a judge decides the fate of someone; possibly even for life, and it is definitely not a laughing matter. But God’s own son, who loves us very much, came down and said that we were innocent. He made us innocent by taking on our sin. He was cursed by God, and the people hated Him, and killed Him.
Jesus Himself was wrongly judged; however this was something that God intended to happen. Jesus, who was innocent and who never sinned,took our sins upon Himself and was killed upon a cross as though He was the worst of sinners. And the reason that He did this, was to save us; He died for us so that we could live.
Now we can say to the guilty, you can be innocent. You can be innocent because of Jesus. Jesus has taken all the sin of the world, so that we may be innocent. He made us Children of God, and freed us from our sin. Praise the Lord!
