It is not God’s desire for anyone to perish in eternal damnation. He lovesHis creation and that’s why He sent Jesus to die so that even the vilest canbe redeemed. Even when Jesus was nailed to the cross, one of the criminalsbeing crucified beside Him said: “Jesus, remember me when you come intoyour kingdom!” To this, Jesus replied: “Truly I tell you, today you shall bewith me in Paradise” (Luke 23:42).This criminal’s human life was just about to end, and then our Lordpromised him eternal life in Paradise! Jesus snatched this sinner from thejaws of death! He saved this man as He Himself was letting go of His ownearthly life. We can only be saved from the jaws of death through Jesus Christ.
