Adam and a thief on the cross

Their story begins on the day man was lost and the day man was saved! Their response to God is recorded in parallel as such …

(1) They Feared God

Adam … “I was afraid”

Thief … Do you not even fear God”?

(2) They Felt Condemnation

Adam … “I was naked”

Thief … “Since you are under the same sentence of condemnation”?

(3) The Were Aware of Consequences

Adam … “I hid myself”

Thief … “and we indeed are suffering justly”.

(4) They Accepted Ownership

Adam “I ate”

Thief … “for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds”.

(5) They Needed A Sacrifice

Adam … God “clothed them” with garments of skin”

Thief … “but this man has done nothing wrong”!  (Lamb of God)

(6) They Wanted To Be In God’s Kingdom

Adam … God “drove them out” of the Garden.  (Adam was forced out)

Thief … “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom”!

All who are saved from the beginning of time respond the same!
