  Study Tools

1. CARELESS WORDS

"If thou be Christ, save thyself and us".

Spoken by the rebellious thief.

(a) His big mistake - He doubted - "If".

(b) His bad manners - He demanded - "save thyself and us". Speaking to Almighty God in such a way was both blasphemous and irreverent.

2. CAREFUL WORDS

"Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss...Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom".

(a) His rebuke of the sceptic - "Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds".

(b) His regard for the Saviour - "this man hath done nothing amiss".

(c) His request to the Sovereign - "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom".

3. CARING WORDS

"Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise".

(a) Something to look forward to - "paradise".

(b) Someone to hold on to - "me".

Wash me, O Lamb of God,

Wash me from sin!

Thou, while I trust in Thee,

Wilt keep me clean.

Each day to Thee I bring

Heart, life — yea, ev’rything;

Saved, while to Thee I cling,

Saved from all sin!
