Between Two Thieves

Quote 3D Logo

The cross must be raised again at the center of the marketplace as well as on the steeple of the church. I am claiming that Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles, but on a cross between two thieves; on the town garbage heap, at a crossroads so cosmopolitan they had to write His title in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. At the kind of place where cynics talk smut, and thieves curse, and soldiers gamble, because that is where He died and that is what he died about and that is where churchmen ought to be and what churchmen should be about.

  1. I definitely agree, but we also must kneel at the foot of the cross ( yes, between two candles in the Church) as did the few faithful on Calvary. From whence comes our strength to be among the crowds at that cosmopolitan trash heap. There John received instruction from Jesus and what His will was (to take care of Mary, his mother). There his followers learned of Christ’s needs, and there they experienced forgiveness.

  2. Reblogged this on Prophetic Voice and commented:
    Wow!!! Oh how HE loves us!!! LORD burn this into every heart. Every waking moment let it be about You and shining your love in this dark world. Amen.

  3. What a call to go back to the basics– God’s love and purpose for dying. This what we believers are about and should be doing–loving the unloved, abandoned, thieves, etc., in God’s name for He came not for the godly but for the ungodly. I pray that every heart will experience the truth about God’s love and act accordingly.
    God bless you.

  4. this really touched me deeply and encapsulates exactly what i believe the gospel is about and how i believe we must live it out…amen..reminds me of the text on becoming all things to all people so that by all means some might be saved. hallelujah!

  5. Yes! It’s time churches focus more on equipping the saints to take the Gospel outside the church walls and stop using the services to evangelize and feeding the flock only milk.

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
