DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
(Lent Day 36 🛐)
7 WORDS OF JESUS ON THE CROSS
And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise. Luke 23:43
THEME: YOU ARE AN AMBASSADOR OF CHRIST
WORDS OF HOPE:
Jesus hanged on the cross and had endured ridicule from one of the thieves who had equally been crucified. The other thief on the cross supposedly goes to the defense of Christ and wards off the attacks from his other colleague and then requests of Christ to be remembered in His kingdom. This is the background of Christ’s words “verily … today shalt thou be with me in paradise.”
What’s your attitude when others attack the integrity of Christ in your world? Are you indifferent or forthright? Like the thief who was promised paradise, everyone who calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved. Be Christ’s ambassador irrespective of where you find yourself (2 Cor 5:20). Be a trusted advocate for Christ. Speak up for His name. Don’t shut up because you’re hurting. Speak up for Christ for His integrity is at stake in your life.
• Thank God for His word today.
• Pray for the courage to speak and stand for Christ when the call arises.
✋🏽Declaration: I’m an ambassador of Christ. I function for His sake in everything and at all times in Jesus’ name. Amen 🙏🏽
