Message from a Thief

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Luke 23:26-43

Two thieves were crucified alongside Jesus. One thief defiantly taunts Jesus about being "the Christ," but the other has a different heart. He reprimands the first thief for his self-centered, worldly thinking saying,

"Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong." (Luke 23:40-41)

I was struck by this man's understanding of the situation. His words were a powerful reminder of God's grace and the fact that Jesus paid the penalty for all of my sin (my "due reward") as he hung and died on the cross.

Take some time today to think about Jesus's sacrifice on the cross. How has knowing Jesus (having a personal relationship with Him) changed your life? Would you thank Him for His sacrifice and then tell someone else about Jesus and His love for them this weekend? And while you're at it, invite them to church! Tami

Thank You,Lord for Your saving grace for me for all eternity. May I always be thankful for all You have given to me. Salvation was a life-time gift from
Jesus Who suffered greatly with His love,mercy and grace for us!
Two thieves had a chose and I am so thankful that I heard about Jesus when I was young and have NEVER been sorry that I have trusted Him, just so sorry that I have not trusted Him all the time!
