LUKE 23:38-43

38 Above him were written these words: “This is the King of the Jews.” 39 One of the criminals hanging there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!” 40 The other one, however, rebuked him, saying, “Don’t you fear God? You received the same sentence he did. 41Ours, however, is only right, because we are getting what we deserve for what we did; but he has done no wrong. ” 42 And he said to Jesus, “Remember me, Jesus, when you come as King!” 43 Jesus said to him, “I promise you that today you will be in Paradise with me.”

It’s incredible that one decision and proclamation can totally change a lifetime forever. The promise that Jesus made to the repentant thief on the cross was life changing. Jesus will always be with you, too.
