A Clean Record

I was thinking of the thief who was on the cross next to Jesus. This man had been a criminal. Maybe he lived in the area and had even heard Jesus preach, or seen Jesus heal the sick, but he never thought he needed a Savior - until now.

Earlier that day, he had ridiculed Jesus like the others. But seeing the love Jesus had for those who crucified Him, the thief had a change of heart. Jesus not only forgave him, but destroyed the years of evidence that incriminated him. This man entered eternity with a clean record.

See Luke 23:39-43
