Taking What Does Not Belong to You

A thought recently came to my mind. Though I do not remember exactly how it developed, I thought it was profound because I had never noted such a simple fact in over 24 years of living.

Every gospel account reveals that two criminals were crucified when Jesus was crucified (cf. Matthew 27:38; Mark 15:27; Luke 23:39ff; John 19:18). Furthermore, two of these accounts specifically indicate that these criminals were robbers (Matthew and Mark).

These two thieves were being put to death because of what they (probably) never claimed to have taken.

Jesus was being put to death because of what He (boldly) claimed to have given (John 10:28).

Have you considered His gift? Why would you not make the simple switch, and take it?
