A Word of Faith
Sunday March 14th, 2021
Words to the Cross Message Series.
Pastor Jack Mannschreck
One of the thieves on the crosses to Jesus’ left and right asked that Jesus remember him when he came into his kingdom. It is a request born out of a need for redemption and acceptance. The thief who appealed to Jesus for acceptance into the kingdom of heaven knew that Jesus couldn’t offer him anything that he deserved, but only that which cannot be deserved – love, acceptance, and eternal life. What a journey that man traveled on that last day of his life! From mocking Jesus to defending Jesus to accepting Jesus to making a final request of Jesus. There is only one explanation – faith.
