United in Prayer, Unlimited in Power As We Link to the Father
Hi everyone, I would like to share what I learned in the K.U.B.C. with you.
The text was Luke 23:32-43. " I promise you that you will be in Paradise with me."
The former criminal was still blind to sin and overwhelmed by anger and fear. He required Jesus to save him as he expected, and he failed to have faith. He shows the typical characteristics of sinners.
The latter recognized his sin, so he had faith in Jesus. He realized that he didn't deserve salvation, but was given it for the sake of God's Grace. He showed the ultimate attitude human should have to God. In other words, salvation given to human is very God's Grace.
The last question of the text deeply dug out my mind." The very person who killed Jesus in the true sense was your sin."
" Forgive them, Father! They don't know what they are doing" is also a prayer for you. What does it mean to you?
When I complain to God, I am the former criminal who required God's help as he expected and insulted Him. I also sometimes nailed Jesus onto the cross by being disobedient.
However, Jesus continually plays for me," Forgive Masako, Father! .........." and leads me to repentance.
God reminded me the truth through this study that for the sake of His Grace I am saved.
I want to stand firm on this truth.
Thanks for your patience.
