And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Luke 23: 39-43 (KJV)
Jesus was and is betrayed over,
and over, and over, and over,
and over, and over, and over
again. And yet His grace, mercy,
and love drenched gospel message
is so tenderly compassionate and
always ceaselessly flowing. “For God
so loved the world that he gave His
only begotton son that whosoever
believeth in Him will not perish but
have everlasting life. Because of our
Savior’s unending grace to each and
every one of us, may we, like our Savior,
live a life that is full of His tender mercy,
compassion, forgiveness, grace, and love.
For when Jesus Christ is our source, His love
in and through us is gloriously unending.
