Remember Me…

Those two words, spoken by a dying man, both changed his eternal-destiny and remind us that we can’t save ourselves.

Three crosses…

Three men condemned to die…

Two men died for crimes that they had committed…

One man died who was innocent, but died for crimes that were not His own…

39 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”

40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:39-43)

He didn’t walk an aisle, pray a prayer, sign a card, get baptized or join a church. He simply confessed his deepest need to the only person who could satisfy that need, Jesus. His simple faith in Jesus gave him what he couldn’t earn or merit – salvation and an eternal reward. Why do we have to make it so difficult?

Have you confessed your need for a savior?

In Christ,
Steve
