Unfinished Business

Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom." (Luke 23:42)

  • We all have unfinished businesses in our lives.
  • Our unfinished business may include apologies left unsaid.
  • Or it may be unfinished spiritual decisions.
  • One of the criminals who was crucified with Jesus needed desperately to make such a decision.
  • Just a few breaths away from eternity, he realized who Jesus was.
  • He wanted to be with Him in heaven.
  • He recognized his sin and Jesus’ innocence.
  • And he said, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom”.
  • And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise."
  • God does not want anyone to perish.
  • His offer of salvation is open to anyone, regardless of age, health, or stage in life.
  • His offer is open to us.
  • Don’t delay receiving Jesus as Savior.
  • Resolve this important and unfinished business.
  • And we will look forward to eternity with Him.
  • The Lord God is waiting.
  • He is waiting to see if we are willing to open the door.
  • Oh, how He wants to come in!
  • To be saved here means to be safe hereafter.
