Cheap Sunglasses

  • One of the criminals who was hanged insulted him, saying, "If you are the Christ, save yourself and us!" But the other answered, and rebuking him said, "Don't you even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? Luke 23:39'40 WEB.

    Three men were crucified outside Jerusalem on a hill called Golgotha. Which means "Place of a Skull." The Man on the center cross was Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of God. A convicted criminal was hanging on His left and another His right. One of the criminals ridiculed Jesus, while the other began to defend Him. Both of these criminals had been caught, convicted, and crucified together. Yet, there were differences between the two.

    One of the criminals had a spark of hope. He saw himself as redeemable, while the other felt that it was too late for him. Even though the Son of God was only a few feet away and would have forgiven them both, one of them couldn't see through his pain-filled past. He felt that he was just human trash and not worth saving. That God could never forgive someone like him for all of the things he had done. But, he was wrong.

    Each time I have been hurt in my life or hurt someone else, I grew a little more calloused. I developed a little thicker shell to protect myself. It became a little more difficult to believe that God cared about me, that He still loved me. Looking at tomorrow through cheap sunglasses and thinking the future would just be more of the past. Bad lenses like that will distort your vision.

    What you have done wrong can be forgiven. What you have broken can be repaired. What you have lost can be found. The things you used to dream about can still come to pass in your life. The end of one thing is only the beginning of another. You must realize that whatever you have done, it is not too late. You can have a fresh start. You are the one that makes the difference, and you are the one who has to make a choice.

    One thief was saved, while one thief was lost because of the choice they made. So have hope. God loves you. He still has a plan for your life. Don't let the pain of your past keep you from seeing the open arms of Jesus Christ today. He chose you. Now choose Him.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please forgive me, a sinner. Without You, I am nothing. Help me put my life back together. Come into my heart and lead me from this day on. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit, guide my steps, speak to me and through me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.'
