Saved by grace // 17-04-19

“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.”” Luke‬ ‭23:40-43‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The second criminal admitted his own sin. He knew what he deserved and tho he figured he was beyond redemption he turned to Jesus, he called Him Lord and all he asked was to be remembered…and Jesus responded! Anyone who has become a Christian knows this scenario; a recognition of my sin, a turning to Christ, a decision to trust Jesus, surrendering to His Lordship, and the realisation that He died for me, that I am forgiven, that my name is written in the book of life and that I will be remembered and be with Him forever because of what He did! Wow! I am that 2nd criminal, saved by grace 😊
