DYING THIEF

   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Uncategorized

The melody behind ‘There is a Fountain’ comes from an unknown traditional American sound. Verse of 2 of that old hymn says:

The dying thief rejoiced to see That fountain in his day;
And there may I, though vile as he, Wash all my sins away:
Wash all my sins away, Wash all my sins away;
And there may I, though vile as he, Wash all my sins away.

Sometimes its good to remind ourselves that the story of the dying thief on the cross beside Jesus is a picture of us. As sinners, we all deserved to be on the cross beside Jesus. But when that thief as Jesus to remember him, Jesus immediately promised that he would be with Him in Paradise. Because Jesus was paying for the thief sin, it was washed away from him.

How about you, have you ever considered yourself spiritually like the dying thief? That’s why the story is there: its all about you and what Jesus did for you. What will you do with Jesus today?
