Recommended Bible Reading :
Luke 23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Acts4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Today's Devotional Poem .
Three crosses on the mount
In the center- The Lamb of God,
Shedding His blood
Our covering fount.
Who would know
The Good News?
One thief spoke and mocked-
The other spoke and believed.
The blessings of Christ
The believer received.
One knew the Son
And held a measure
Of the gift of faith-
Our greatest treasure.
Three crosses stood
Where our sin debt was paid
Salvation – Under One name
Everlasting covenant made.
Look at the three crosses.
Who are you unto Jesus?
