What our heart reveals about us

The first man Adam and a thief on the cross next to Jesus reveal their hearts. Their story is about the day man was lost and the day man was saved. Notice how they reveal their heart in unison…

(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 Desired 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!
