Jesus invites each of us to sit in the faith chair
Easter is a day of celebration for those who have put their faith in the resurrection of our savior Jesus Christ. For the Christian, every day is a day to celebrate, know the love of Jesus and experience the hope of eternal life.
As Jesus was hanging on a cross that he did not deserve, a guilty criminal was getting the punishment his actions did deserve. This criminal had a close-up view of how Jesus handled the crucifixion.
From his viewpoint, this criminal recognized something special about Jesus and turned to him in faith. This criminal, who could do nothing to earn salvation, by God’s grace, received the gift of salvation.
The gift of salvation is still available to all who turn to Jesus in faith.
