I thought you’d never ask.
In Luke’s version of the Passion, two criminals are crucified along side of Jesus. One criminal joins the Roman soldiers in mocking Jesus, while the other one asks Jesus to remember him when he enters Heaven.
Jesus replies with - in my opinion the most beautiful phrase in the entire bible - “Amen I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
That passage reminds me of two things:
One, Jesus will always forgive us. Even during our final moments and no matter what our sins. His love for us is never ending.
Two, we should all do whatever we can so that we hear those same words from Him during our final hours. Can you imagine how glorious is must be to hear those words from Christ? To know you will be joining him in Heaven?
And so this blog is one way that I am trying to grow closer to God. Its my own little way to try and reach paradise.
