A Robber in Paradise

  • Series: Invitations to faith
  • Scripture: Lk 23:32-43
  • Location: St Paul's Cooma

No one likes it when the bad guy wins. But suppose you knew yourself to be the bad guy? What if you know the honest truth the Apostle Paul confessed (Romans 7:15-20), that

I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. …

If you know that to be true, then you need the mercy of forgiveness. And if, like the second of the two guilty men who hung on crosses beside Jesus, you turn to the crucified Jesus today, or any day, confess your guilt, admit that he has the power to release you from the sentence of death you deserve, and ask him for that mercy — then he will give you the right to live forever in Paradise, in the presence of God.
