As we reflect on the setting there on that execution hill, we see an amazing picture, a symbol – so to speak – that represents all of mankind and our response to the passionate love that Christ has for all of us.
Two men, both condemned to die, knowing for certain now that they were out of options in this life. There would be no reprieve. There would be no one to help them, or save their lives. They both seemed to know who Jesus was, and they both came to that critical moment of departure from this life with an attitude about him that would secure their eternal future!
At the end of the sermon, enjoy this video with a beautiful meditation on the words of the Thief:
Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.
