There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” ~ Luke 13:1-5 (ESV)
Heavenly Father, if You judge me on my deeds, I will perish, for Your Word tells us the wages of sin is death. But when I repent and turn to You, the Blood of Jesus washes away my sin, and You grant me forgiveness and eternal life. Make me always penitent and grateful for Your grace and mercy. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
