When Jesus Christ was crucified, two men hung on crosses beside Him.
One man questioned Jesus’ authority and scoffed at Him.
In time, the other acknowledged it…. “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”
What a power-packed confession of faith fully recognizing the authority of Jesus and His Kingdom work… when no one else did.
To him, Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, today, you will be with Me in paradise.”
He died believing. And inherited eternal life.
The one who questioned Jesus’ authority died in unbelief… and remains in condemnation.
The eternal consequences are very different. One is forever in the Kingdom, and one not.
“There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” says Romans 8:1.
What about you? How do you view Jesus?
Do you acknowledge His authority? His Kingdom? And His Kingdom coming in all its fullness?
Will you believe?
This really does change everything.
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”Matthew 28:18
