The Thieves Legs are Broken – John 19:31-32
These two verses bring a reality of the harshness and cruelty of crucifixition and Roman law. The Roman soldiers saw that Jesus had died and so to hurry the death of the other prisoners along they brought their lives. In this act this show the disregard the Roman had for human life. Let us not be like the Romans, let us regard all life as precious and valuable. People have been made in the image of God and should be treated with love acceptance and forgiveness. An interesting side note. The thief who ask Jesus to remember Him when He came in Kingdom was about to have his wish fulfilled. Sometimes life can be cruel but the hope owe have in Jesus Christ will help to overcome what we face and one day we shall be with Him as the thief was. Let us put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ and walk in victory inspite of what happens in the world around us.
