Self-Condemnation is not Enough!

Luke 23:39-44

The Word of Justification.

When we get to self-condemnation we don't stay there — as though the thief on the cross had realized his condition years ago and saved up until this moment to repent. As if — If we truly understand the condemnation in which we stand we won't want to linger in it for a second, so self-condemnation passes quickly on to repentance and faith in Jesus. The thief on the cross was justified by faith and so must we be justified also; by faith in the crucified Jesus.
