Summary: ONE WAS DENYING HIS GUILT , WHILE THE OTHER ONE ADMITTIED HIS WRONG

  Study Tools

When Adam saw his wife sin in the garden

In the distance God saw a cross

When Cain killed his brother, God was watching

And God saw a cross

When Moses slew the Egyptian man in anger

God saw a cross

And when David chose Bathsheba over honor

God knew there had to be a cross

God saw a cross being raised on the horizon

God saw His son being slain for one and all

God saw His blood being shed for my redemption

For every fall God saw a cross

When I was born the world just saw a sinner

Oh but thanks to Jesus, God saw a cross

And when I first rejected His great offer

I'm so thankful God still saw a cross

And with each wicked choice I walked in darkness

My God saw a cross

So blinded by my sin, my soul was helpless

With eyes of mercy God still saw a cross

And when I finally gave my heart to Jesus

From that moment of time until forever

When God sees me, He only sees the cross

Last Chorus

God sees a cross…

God sees His son who was on that cross

God sees His blood that was shed on that cross

God Saw A Cross

WHICH SIDE OF THE CROSS ARE YOU ON

Luke 23:33-43

I. ONE WAS DENYING HIS GUILT , WHILE THE OTHER ONE ADMITTIED HIS WRONG

(v. 39) We see the thief on the right railing on the Lord saying, “If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.

He was denying his guilt

(v 40) The other rebuked him saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

(v 41) And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward for our deeds

He was admitting his wrong

If people are ever going to get right with God they are going to have to admit they have been wrong

II. ONE WAS SORRY FOR BEING A THIEF THE OTHER WAS SORRY HE GOT CAUGHT

Luk 23:41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.

Luk 23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

Luk 23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.

Some people aren’t sorry for what they have done they are sorry they got caught

WHICH SIDE OF THE CROSS ARE YOU ON

III. ONE REALIZED HIS CONDITION, THE OTHER WAS BLIND TO HIS CONDEMNATION

If a person ever gets saved they have got to get lost first.

(v 42) And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into they kingdom

(v 43) And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise

WHICH SIDE OF THE CROSS ARE YOU ON

IV. ONE WAS DYING IN SIN, ONE WAS DYING OUT OF SIN AND ONE WAS DYING FOR SIN

The thief on the left was dying in sin and refused to ask Jesus to help him

The thief on the right realizing he was in his dying minutes of life asked Jesus to remember him and died out sin

The one in the middle was alone, destitute, friendless and fatherless that day as he died for the sins of all mankind

Close: (Philippians 3:18) (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ
