Skunked

Didja hear the one about the man who came upon a skunk with its' head stuck in a small fruit jar? It was evident that the skunk would smother and die if the jar was not removed, but every attempt to remove the jar was met by the skunk raising his tail in defense. The skunk was unaware that he was not only in a dangerous situation, but that the man was trying to help him.

God offers salvation to the sinner who is smothering, dying in the guilt of his own sins. Only when he trusts Lord Jesus Christ, who through his death, burial and resurrection paid the penalty for sin, will he be free from the power of sin! God in Christ Jesus alone can remove the "jar" called sin whose reward is death.
