Nothing wrong

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 10:42 pm

Luke 23:40 But the other rebuked him, saying, Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?41 And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.

The man crucified next to Jesus truly understood.  He had no inflated ideas of his own righteousness.  He knew what he’d done and what he deserved.  He saw that the man next to him was truly innocent of any and every crime.  This was the one man who had never done anything wrong and yet He was being killed for it.  The criminal believed and was forgiven.

I like to think I’m good but the best I can do is worthless.  I’m forgiven only because I trust in the sacrifice of Jesus to save me – the one perfect sacrifice that paid for my sins once and for all time.  I deserved death, he didn’t.  Through Him I can live free and forever.  Thank You Lord.
