A Gracious King

33 And when they came to the place which is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left. 34 And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”[a] And they cast lots to divide his garments. 35 And the people stood by, watching; but the rulers scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!” 36 The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him vinegar, 37 and saying, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!” 38 There was also an inscription over him,[b] “This is the King of the Jews.”
39 One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!” 40 But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” 42 And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into[c] your kingdom.” 43 And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”

What a wonderful worship service. So sorry that Howard has covid, so glad that Rick does such an outstanding job in his absence. I love it when My one of favorite Bible verses are used in a service, ” . . . nothing can seperate us from the love of God.” As a Gideon for 26 years, I led a Bible Study at the county jail every Sunday for years and then every 5th Sunday and I always used Romans 8. It helped the men and women there and it always helped me. God is Good beyone our understanding. God Bless.
