Luke 23: 39 – 43 says: “Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, “If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.” But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.” And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”
The choices we make on a daily basis are the keys to life, change and deliverance. There were two thieves on crosses beside Jesus – one made the right choice and one mad the wrong choice. An innocent man was ridiculed, rejected, mocked, whipped, flogged and nailed to the cross. We see this happen on a daily basis today. We see people doing the same thing today to Jesus! They ridicule His existence, death and resurrection. Even personally as Christians, many are murdered, ridiculed and mocked for their faith. Some even wonder if, when they are carrying their cross, if they are cursed. But there is good news for all who suffered – HE IS RISEN! He has paid it all for us! For the sinners you have a choice – to believe and to receive Him. Don’t let family, pride, money, sex, material things, cause you to make the wrong choice. He is giving each person an opportunity tonight. Don’t be like the thief who rejected Him.
Romans 10: 9 – 13 shows us the way to Salvation. Just say this little Prayer:
Lord I am a sinner, I believe in you as Lord and Savior. I believe in your death and resurrection, Come into my heart. Wash me with your blood and save me. I confess all my sins. And I ask you to accept me as your son/daughter. Amen!
That’s it you are saved! Welcome to the Family
