PLEASE KEEP MY SHIRT CLEAN – Two guys were drinking in a bar while drinking they started arguing, one guy pounce on his friend and started beating him. After a long beating he realised that his friend was no longer breathing, he is dead!!!!!.
Then the guy started running with his shirt full of blood. Those who were watching the fight started chasing him. He ran to the house of a Christian man, knocked and said,
“Can you please hide me, i have killed a person and people are chasing me.”
The Christian man replied, “Where am i going to hide you in my one room apartment?”
The muderer said “There is no time to waste here, just think of anywhere you can hide me.”
After a long thinking, the Christian man said to the murderer, “Give me your shirt and take my shirt but REMEMBER TO KEEP MY SHIRT CLEAN”
They exchanged their shirts. Then as soon as the Christian man opened the door, people started beating him and was badly injured that he was taken to the police station.
From police station, the case was taken to court and the man was found guilty of murder and was sentenced to death.
The real murderer was safe at home but was feeling so guilty that he ran to the Court and said,
“Can you please release that innocent man, am the real murderer”.
The judge replied “unfortunately it’s too late, the man is already hanged at last”.
He ran to the police where the man washanged and for sure he found him dead hanging.
He knelt down and cried his eyes out and said to himself, ” You paid for my crime”
He remembered the Christian’s last words: “KEEP MY SHIRT CLEAN !!!” That’s how the murderer repented and became a christian!
This is what Jesus did for us. He died for the crime he did not commit on the cross of Calvary. he was arrested for you, he was whipped for you, he was spit on for you, he was slain for you, he was humiliated for you, he was nailed on the cross for you, he died for a crime he knew nothing about…. Jesus wants you to keep his shirt clean. Please keep my shirt clean.
