The painting has only 2 Crosses. Jesus and the thief HE Saved from Hell.
You have HIS Story to tell. The better you know it, the more familiar you are with its intimate details, the greater the quality of the seeds will be that you plant…giving the Holy Spirit more to work with to reach those you love and others God brings to you.
And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
The Gospel and the Harvest are tied together with words. It is the quality of your words that will have a direct impact on the Harvest. So when you explain the importance of the Cross of Christ to someone make sure you tell them the rest of the story… ”Why there are 3 Crosses” and the Consequences of making the WRONG DECISION.
When I became a believer in Jesus I recognized HIM on the Cross and accepted His death in exchange for mine.
Later I understood that in order to be HIS Follower I needed to take up my own Cross in this life filled with storms. Then, as I looked at the 3 Crosses I saw myself on the Cross next to HIM.
In Matthew 11:29-30 Jesus says to us …
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls…For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
When I finally understood that JESUS said that to me, I realized I am never alone and HE is with me always, even to the end of the age.
So now when I see the 3 Crosses I see myself there in the center held tightly in the arms of Jesus. I have become part of HIS Cross and I no longer carry mine.
He … knew my name !
He… knew my story !
I … was on His mind when He Died !
HE IS RISEN ! Remember and Share HIS Story ! ! !
