"THE SECOND WORD OF JESUS ON THE CROSS IS AN OPPORTUNITY WELL USED" Luke 23: 41-43.
I think the two criminals crucified along side Jesus got the best opportunity ever, but unfortunately one of them didn't know. On the other hand, the second criminal recognized this opportunity and he made it to heaven. There is a great price to pay for being ignorant.
It was not only the second criminal that seized the opportunity, Jesus also made good use of the same opportunity to add one more soul to His father's Kingdom. The reason is that Jesus knew His purpose on earth and therefore make good use of every little opportunity He has.
The question is what are you doing as an individual, an organization, a family or a nation this Easter? Do we sometimes or most times behave like the first (ignorant) criminal?
