Even CURSORILY EVALUATING this statement, we see PROFOUND TRUTHS hidden in it. Delving deeper accentuates these subheadings so much further that it is simply baffling to the human mind, the depth of meaning conveyed by each word (carefully chosen) by Jesus as he spoke His SECOND SAYING from the Cross,
VERILY – indicating that this saying was a PROMISE
I SAY UNTO YOU – indicating that the address was PERSONAL
TODAY – indicating the element of time was the PRESENT
SHALT THOU BE WITH ME – indicating Man’s PRESENCE with God
IN PARADISE – indicating our PLACE of rest
Point(s) to Ponder:
Can Jesus say this to us, Today?
