Which side of Christ will you choose?

Since the safeguard of shelter in place was implemented, my husband and I started watching Christian movies every night after dinner. We didn’t realize the multiple sources at our fingertips that offer free movies. The movie, Jackson Run was so impacting that I decided to share a portion with you.

There were three crosses on the day Christ died.

On the right hand of Christ was a criminal that looked inwardly on the mistakes he made.

He knew he deserved to be punished.

In his need, he cried out to Jesus.

On the left hand of Christ was another criminal.

He was only concerned with what he saw.

In his corrupted mind, The only unjust death was his own.

So he lashed out at Jesus.

Now both of these men had a choice.

To either accept or reject Jesus Christ.

But, the unique thing about these two very different men,

Is that they both were on the cross.

They both were facing the same end. And that end was death.

On the middle cross, was Jesus Christ.

On the right cross was nailed a man who found the way.

And, on the left cross was nailed a man who lost his way.

Which side of Christ will you choose?

STORY FROM THE BIBLE; ”One of the criminals who had been hanged [on a cross beside Him] kept hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us [from death]!” But the other one rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? We are suffering justly, because we are getting what we deserve for what we have done; but this Man has done nothing wrong.” And he was saying, “Jesus, [please] remember me when You come into Your kingdom!” Jesus said to him, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭23:39-43‬ ‭AMP‬‬
