GLIMPSES OF THE GREAT GOD: DAY TWENTY
"Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with Him to be executed.
When they came to the place called the Skull,
there they crucified Him,
along with the criminals –
one on His right and the other on His left.
Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.'.....
"One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at Him:
'Aren’t you the Christ? Save yourself and us!'
But the other criminal rebuked him.
'Don’t you fear God,' he said,
'since you are under the same sentence?
We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve,
but this man has done nothing wrong.'
Then he said,
'Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.'
Jesus answered him,
'I tell you the truth,
today you will be with me in paradise.'"
Luke 23:32-34a; 39-43
There must have been something so amazingly different about Jesus that a hardened thug, dying for his crimes, was deeply touched by His words and His attitude. What he saw and heard made him realise that Jesus was no ordinary man. This last-minute revelation gained him an eleventh-hour rescue from hell.
