Luke 23:5 (NASB) And the people stood by, looking on, and even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One." 36) The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine, 37) and saying, "If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!" 38) Now there was also an inscription above Him, "THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS." 39) One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, "Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!" 40) But the other answered, and rebuking him said, "Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41)"And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong." 42) And he was saying, "Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!" 43) And He said to him, "Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise."
In essence, we (you and me) deserved to be hanging on that cross because we are guilty of sin. (Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.) Jesus did not because He was without sin. You my friend, you are both thieves on the cross. If you haven't acknowledged Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior (see preceding post for how to do that) you are the one who hurled insults vs 39. If you have then you are the one who Jesus said in vs 43 "today you shall be with Me in Paradise." Stop right now from whatever you are doing and ask yourself "which one am I?" "I don't know" will not work here and is for cowards. Own up and do something about it. God already knows the answer and He has given you a way to His very self. John 3:16 and John 14:6
