And he said to him,“Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
Luke 23:43 ESV
We all need something to hope for. We all need something to look forward to!
Jesus knows this! Giving ourselves to Him doesn’t come without benefit.
One day, we will be with Him in Heaven. This is a promise! This is a promise that even the thief on the cross received.
In his last hours, the thief needed something. He knew he was about to die, there was no turning back. So he reached out to Jesus and was not turned away!
Jesus doesn’t turn anyone away who wants salvation!
The thief was promised that he would be in paradise. And although we don’t hear about it again, we know it happened because all of God’s promises are true.
Do you need some hope? Do you need something to look forward to? Maybe you’ve been looking in the wrong places for way too long!
It’s time to give your life to Jesus and look forward to the day when you will be with Him in paradise.
You still have time. You can give Him your heart and life!
You see, the thief could only give him his heart. His life was spent. He had only hours. So all he had to give was his heart. And Jesus took that!
But long to bring Jesus more than just your heart. Give Him everything!
Father, have my heart and my life and use it to for Your glory. Who or what else is worthy like You?
