Criminals on the Cross – God’s Eternal Plan
Through the criminals on the cross, we see that death exposes the human heart. Note what was said during Jesus’ crucifixion. The events of that historic time proclaim truth for us all.
Criminals on the Cross – Different Destinations
At the climax of a lifetime’s interaction with sinners, we see Jesus between two criminals. One joins the mockers and dies with his sins. The other admits his guilt, acknowledges Jesus’ majesty and seeks His mercy. An aloof sovereign might well ignore such a request from so despicable a subject. But we are all guilty, and King Jesus shows mercy to all. Only one thing remains. Like the repentant criminal, we must put our last and only hope in the King.
