Key to Paradise

by Heather Tietz

He said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.” Jesus said to him, “Assuredly I tell you, today, you will be with me in Paradise.”

Luke 23:42-43

Crucifixion has been said to be the cruelest form of corporal punishment, a death of agonizing pain, suffocation and literally a broken heart. Jesus knows the torment this human body can undergo.

Jesus suffered the excruciating pain and suffering of the cross, so that you can be with Him in paradise

You can’t fathom life in paradise. You can’t find it with your own eyes. It can’t be seen through a telescope. It can’t be drawn on a map. Paradise is ready and only Jesus knows the way. We can get there only through Him.

Paradise is God’s residence. It’s Jesus’ home. Like the sinner on the cross, you are invited. Since you accepted Jesus as your Savior and Lord, you can go through the open door of paradise. Yes, when you have Jesus, you have the key to the Paradise.

Father, I need Jesus who is the key to Paradise. Help me depend on Him all the time and live as Jesus did . I pray in the Name of Jesus who is the key to the Paradise, Amen.
