Jesus, remember me

Rembrandt (1606-1669)
The Three Crosses
drypoint and burin on paper (III/IV), 1653
Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum

The other [criminal hanging there said], “We have been condemned justly, for the sentence we received corresponds to our crimes, but this man has done nothing criminal.”  Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Luke 23:41-42

Today I will follow the example of the criminal hanging on a cross near Jesus: I will take responsibility for my words and actions. I will be accountable for how I treat others. I will keep my focus on the Lord and ask Jesus to remember me.
