But because of his praiseworthy past and his satisfactory morals, his relatives, acquaintances, and friends wrote petitions for mercy that bore the signature of almost all the people of the town. Within a short period, the people of the neighboring cities and villages heard the story and sympathized with the poor young man. They participated in signing other petitions for mercy.

After that, these petitions were presented to the governor of the region, who happened to be a Christian believer, and tears were shed from his eyes when he saw hundreds of pleas from the people of the town and neighboring towns filling a large basket in front of him.

After deep contemplation, he decided to pardon the young man. Thus, he wrote the pardon order and put it in his pocket. Then he put on the clothes of a clergyman and went to prison. When the ruler reached the death cell, the young man rose from inside it, holding onto its iron bars, saying in an angry voice:

Go Away

Seven of your kind have visited me so far. I need no further teaching and preaching. I have known many of them in the house.” “But,” said the Governor, “please wait a moment, young man, and listen to what I have to say to you.” “Listen,” cried the young man angrily, “Get out of here at once, or else I will call the guard.” said the Governor in a loud voice.

But, young man,” “I have news that is very important to you, don’t you want me to tell you about it?” The young man replied, “I have heard what I told you before!”, “Get out immediately, or else I will call the jailer.” The governor answered, “It is okay,” and with a broken heart, he turned and left the place. Moments later, the guard arrived and said to the young man:

“You’re lucky you got a visit from the governor.” “What!” the young man exclaimed, “was that cleric the ruler?” The guard replied, “Yes, he is the ruler, and he carried your pardon in his pocket, but you did not want to hear and listen to what he would tell you.”

“Give me quit, give me ink, give me paper,” cried the young man at the top of his voice. Then he sat down and wrote the following: “Governor, I apologize to you, and I am very sorry for what I did and the way I received you.”

The governor received that letter of apology, and after he read it, he turned it over and wrote on the other side of the paper: “I no longer care about this case.” Then came the appointed day for the execution of the sentence against the young man. At the gallows, he was asked the well-known traditional question.

“Is there anything you want to say before you die?” “Yes,” said the young man, “tell the young men where they were that I am not dying now because of the crime I have committed. I am not dying because I am a murderer! The governor has pardoned me, and I could have lived. To them, I am dying now because I refused the ruler’s pardon and did not accept it, so I was denied pardon.”

 

Story Summary

And now, my friend, if you perish, it is not because of your sins, but because you did not accept the pardon that God offers you in his Son. Because if you refuse to accept Jesus Christ, you reject your only hope of salvation? “He who believes in Him is not condemned, and he who does not believe is condemned because he has not believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.” John 3:18. That is the cause of your judgment, my friend. Your acceptance of Christ means hope.

It means repentance. It means getting rid of sins. Do not deceive yourself that you must first become a person worthy of Christ and then accept Him. You must enter into ten and a relationship with Christ to become another human being. Get up now, and remove the ties of the past from you. And start a new life with God. Remember that repentance is not life.. Rather, it is a stage on the way to God. (auto-translate)
