Message from a Thief

Today's reading: Luke 23:32-56

Two thieves were crucified alongside Jesus. One thief falls in line with the thinking of the masses, and defiantly taunts Jesus about being "the Christ." But the other thief has a different heart. He reprimands the first for his self-centered thinking saying, "Do you not fear God for 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). He then asks Jesus to remember him after they die (vs.42).

I was struck by this man's understanding of the spiritual weight of the situation. His words provide such a powerful reminder of God's amazing grace and the fact that Jesus paid the penalty for all of our sin (my sin, your sin--our "due reward") as he willingly hung and experienced an agonizing death on the cross.

Take some time today to think about Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. What does Jesus' death and resurrection mean for you personally? Make time today to thank Him for His sacrifice. Then, tell people you encounter this week about Jesus and His love for them, and invite them to an Easter service. You could change someone's life for eternity. Tami
