James Hastings, a Scottish minister and biblical scholar in the early twentieth century, told an intriguing
story about a German artist named Sternberg. As a little gypsy girl was sitting for a portrait in his studio,
she noticed on the wall a half-finished portrait of Christ on the cross. The girl asked who it was. When
told it was Jesus, she responded that He must have been a very wicked Man to have been nailed to a
cross. The painter told her that, on the contrary, “Christ was the best man who ever lived, and He died
on the cross that others might live.” Then the little girl looked at him with such innocence and asked,
“Did He die for you?” The question haunted Sternberg’s conscience day and night, for though he knew
the truth about Christ, he had not accepted Him as his Savior. He found he was no longer satisfied with
life until he answered the question that you must also answer: Did He die for you? If so, then you must
die to self and find life anew in the resurrected Savior.
