One robber hung on the right and one robber hung on the left.
Jesus hung in the middle on that blessed cross.
Isaiah, the famous Old Testament prophet, said
He would be numbered with the sinners.
Jesus was numbered with the sinners,
One robber hurled nasty comments at Jesus.
The other robber said, “Be quiet do you not fear God?
We belong up here He does not.”
Jesus hung on the cross because of a plot,
By evil men who were jealous of Jesus,
Because He was good and they were not.
What can we learn from this lesson of
Jesus hanging on the cross?
Even though Jesus was boss,
He came to hang on the cross,
To save all of us who were lost.
Remember the robber who asked
The other, “Do you not trust in God?”
He knew he was lost.
He was sorry for the bad things he had done.
He had nowhere to run.
Jesus remembered his name and,
He took this robber to heaven with no shame.
“But the other answered, and rebuking him said, ‘Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?’ ” Luke 23:40
