How does the thief on the cross fit into your theology?

I virtually never post something on our blog from Facebook. In fact, this is maybe the first time. But this is so good I felt I should pass it on. On FB this is credited to a Ron Corzine.

I have added the text below. Makes it easier to share.

Ron Corzine … How does the thief on the cross fit into your theology?
How does the thief on the cross fit into your theology? No baptism, no communion, no confirmation, no speaking in tongues, no mission trip, no volunteerism, and no church clothes. He couldn’t even bend his knees to pray. He didn’t say the sinner’s prayer and among other things, he was a thief. Jesus didn’t take away his pain, heal his body, or smite the scoffers. Yet it was a thief who walked into heaven the same hour as Jesus simply by believing. He had nothing more to offer other than his belief that Jesus was who he said he was. No spin from brilliant theologians. No ego or arrogance. No Shiny lights, skinny jeans, or crafty words. No haze machine, donuts, or coffee in the entrance. Just a naked dying man on a cross unable to even fold his hands to pray.

Bulletin for Sunday – September 25, 2022

Hi Everyone,
Here is this week’s bulletin. You will notice that I have included the words of two of our songs in the bulletin. These are in the book but I wanted everyone to have these words in hand. What a treasure … what a blessing … we have in God’s word.
Pastor Dave

O Word Of God Incarnate—414

Verse 1: O Word of God incarnate, O wisdom from on high, O truth unchanged unchanging, O light of our dark sky, We praise Thee for the radiance, That from the hallowed page, A lantern to our footsteps, Shines on from age to age.

Verse 2: The Church from You, dear Master, Received the gift divine, And still that light is lifted, O’er all the earth to shine, It is the chart and compass, That o’er life’s surging sea, Amid the rocks and quicksands, Still guides, O Christ, to Thee.

Verse 3: O make the Church, dear Savior, A lamp of burnished gold, To bear before the nations, Your true light, as of old, O teach Your wandering pilgrims, By this their path to trace, Till clouds and darkness ended, They see You face to face.

Holy Bible, Book Divine — 412

Verse 1: Holy Bible, book divine, Precious treasure, thou art mine; Mine to tell me whence I came; Mine to teach me what I am.

Verse 2: Mine to chide me when I rove; Mine to show a Savior’s love; Mine thou art to guide and guard; Mine to punish or reward.

Verse 3: Mine to comfort in distress; Suffering in this wilderness; Mine to show, by living faith, Man can triumph over death.

Verse 4: Mine to tell of joys to come, And the rebel sinner’s doom; O thou Holy Bible book Divine, Precious treasure, thou art mine.

[Verse five is not in our hymnals.]

Verse 5: Holy Bible, God’s own Word; Tells of Jesus Christ the Lord; How He died for sinful men, How He rose and lives again.
