“And he was saying, ‘Jesus remember me when You come in Your kingdom’” (Luke 23:42)!
I have been asked if I believe in deathbed conversions. Of course! What is the request of the thief on the cross and the assuring promise given him by Jesus (v.43) if not a deathbed conversion? Sometimes it takes a lifetime of circumstances for a person to come to a place of crying out repentantly for the grace and mercies of God. Even so, why wait? Time waiting is time wasted. Why would one wait until they are nearly dead to discover what it is to truly live?
