And [the other malefactor] said, Jesus, remember me when thou comest in thy kingdom. And he said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in Paradise. Luke 23.42, 43.

Can a robber be saved? The world would conclude that a man who has plundered and killed ought to perish, for such a dangerous prisoner should be consigned to the deepest recesses of hell. He deserves the heaviest punishment, since salvation in the eyes of the world is the portion only of the good people of the earth. Who, then, would imagine that a robber for life—one who had violated the law repeatedly—could be saved instantaneously at the time of death? But it is a fact of history that one who had never done good but had only done evil throughout his life was saved immediately upon believing in the Lord Jesus. People may be saved in the twinkling of a moment because they believe in the Lord Jesus. What an incredible story! What a marvelous salvation!
