The revelation i got in Luke 23: 39 – 43
Jesus Crusified by LR Learn Religion
One of the criminals hanging there began to shout insults at Jesus: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Then save yourself, and save us too!” But the other criminal stopped him. He said, “You should fear God. All of us will die soon. You and I are guilty. We deserve to die because we did wrong. But this man has done nothing wrong.” Then Jesus said to him, “I promise you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
Luke 23:39-41, 43 ERV
What I love here is that when the slave insulted Him, Jesus didnt repond. Shh! He kept quite
But instead the second slave was the one who stopped the first slave anf reminded him of who Jesus was.
The second slave knew who Jesus was and he seized the opportunity and right there, he asked Jesus to remember him.
Jesus didnt waste any time and he just straight made a promise to the second slave, because He keeps his promise and He never lies about anything
The big lesson I learned here though was that Jesus knew when to keep His mouth shut and He didnt utter even a throat clearing sound to the first slave that insulted Him.
He knew when to speak and He only spoke very important words to the second slave.
We all need to know tgat in this lide there will be many prople who will not value you worth, who eill belittle you, who will insult you like the first slave did to Jesus but wgat this teaches us is that – we need to learn to keep quite sometimes.
Save you time, energy and words for the right time and for the right things to say. Simply Never Argue with Fools
Second lesson was that reason that Jesus was between the two slaves. So life may throw lemons at you or life may present you with blessings and the promises of God but always let Jesus be at the centre of it all.
Let Jesus be the centre of your life. Because He takes all of our pain, struggles and sins away and brings us joy, peace and life.
