Beautiful Faith, Beautiful Savior

At lunchtime I enjoy sitting in my car and listening to Christian music or the Christian radio station while I eat my lunch. Today, I was listening to “Discover the Word” on my local Christian radio station.  It was such a good episode, and I wanted to share something interesting that was brought to light.  It’s something we don’t always think about as we ponder our Lord’s crucifixion. 

Both thieves were mocking Jesus, one on either side of Him, as were others there that day. He was abused and mistreated both physically and emotionally.  But something amazing happened.  During the crucifixion, the thieves had a “front seat” view, so to speak, of how Jesus conducted Himself during this awful death. One thief continually mocked him, but the other one at some point stopped, as he witnessed Jesus caring for his mother, and for his friend John.  He witnessed how He never got angry or yelled back, but instead said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”  There was a sermon going on here, and this thief realized something.

He rebuked the other thief, and said that they deserved to be there.  Maybe they were upset at first that Barabbas got off and they didn’t, but he declared that they were on the cross because of what they did to deserve it, but Jesus did nothing wrong.  Then he said something astonishing to Jesus in Luke 23:42: “Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.”  That’s a strange thing to say to a man about to die!  First, he said, “Lord”, showing humility as a servant to Jesus.  Then he said, “remember me when thou”, suggesting that there would be a future for them both, that dying was not all there was. They were both going to be dead that day. The place was identified: “comest into thy kingdom.”  He declared Jesus was Lord and King. He was done mocking.  I wonder if he had heard preaching by Jesus at some point, or if he heard the mockers mock Him saying, “All hail King Jesus!”  That thief knew Jesus was the real deal.

Jesus had his first convert post crucifixion. He said in Luke 23:43: “Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” Wow! That thief died with hope of salvation.  What a beautiful faith he had, and Jesus recognized it. He knew Jesus could save him, and He did.  What a beautiful Savior, that even in the midst of all his suffering and shame for the sin of the world He took the time to care for this man and save him.

I wonder what it was like for that thief?  He almost died and spent eternity in Hell, but things changed for him on his “deathbed.” Jesus didn’t say in a few days he would join him, but rather “today.” After they died they went to paradise. Maybe Jesus spent a little time with him before accomplishing all He had to do before His resurrection from the dead. But whatever happened, we know our marvelous, awesome, loving, caring, beautiful Savior keeps His word, and as Jesus lives, so will we when we ask Jesus to save us from our sins.  Have you placed your faith in Jesus today?

    Dawn, I’ve been trying every which way to reach you. I want to attend your workshop on June 18th, but sadly, I can’t; last day of school is the 19th and I can’t take off the day before.
    Will you be at the next Coffeehouse at Crossroads?
    Look forward to seeing you then.
    Karen (the Poet)

    • Hi Karen! It’s so nice to hear from you! It’s too bad you won’t be able to come to the YMCA, but I totally understand. When is the next coffeehouse going to be at Crossroads Community Cathedral? I really enjoy going to those. And I love hearing your poems!
