When the criminal that realized the Lord”s innocence stated:
“Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom” (Luke 23:42)
Our Lord stated to him:
“Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise” (Luke 23:43).
This was a promise, not only to the criminal, but to us as followers of Christ. When we die, we will be carried by the angels to meet our Lord in Paradise (Abraham’s bosom – Luke 16:22). Won’t that be a great occasion? I’m looking forward to it.
