The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it. –Proverbs 29:4, KJV
Eliot Ness and his team of Untouchables were FBI agents during the American age of Prohibition, known as the Untouchables for being unwilling to accept bribes or cutbacks on the illegal sale of alcohol.
Looking back on history, how many leaders can truly be called untouchable, untarnished by the dealings of our corrupt world?
Kings took unethical steps to get or maintain power. Popes bribed their way into the position. Presidents, Prime Ministers, Governors, and other figureheads bought, bribed, and weaseled their way into power or to maintain their seat.
How great is it to know that our Lord, Jesus, was and is untouchable by the ways of this world?
He cannot be bought or bribed, nor will He cheat or turn away from us.
He paid the price that needed to be paid for our own corruption, but He is without corruption and will one day judge the world.
The Untouchable One touched us with His cleansing blood to establish His everlasting, perfect Kingdom.
