CROSS WORDS

Daily Devotional

“When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left” (Luke 23:33).

On three crosses were found a Savior and two criminals; each offering a word for our consideration. From Jesus comes a word of redemption–”Father, forgive them.” We are shocked that in the presence of such grace a criminal hurls abuse at Jesus–a word of rejection. The other, however, defends the innocence of Jesus while acknowledging their guilt. This one receives a word of reception and the promise of paradise. The word of the cross always brings us to a cross road as to what our lives will be about.
