The thief on the cross teaches us three important truths:
1. No one is ever too far gone. When you’re tempted to think anyone is beyond the reach of grace, remember the criminal on the cross.
2. Your real message is your life. When your life draws the attention of lost people, you have sufficient proof to back up the words you use.
3. All God requires and accepts is simple faith. The thief didn’t doubt…he didn’t have to make any promises. He believed with all His heart and was saved.
