Today’s reading is all about the crucifixion of Christ. There is so much in this chapter that it’s hard to focus on one thing. But what stood out to me was Matthew 27:38, Two robbers were crucified with Him, one on His right and one on His left. I am not sure if there is any symbolism to this, but to me it paints the picture of us with Jesus. When Jesus died on the cross, he did it for our salvation. It should have been us dying that horrible death, but He did it for us because He loved us. We are nothing more than common criminals and yet Jesus found us worth of being saved. We must never take that for granted.
