Luke 23:32,33: “Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals–one on his right, the other on his left.”

Tonight, I find myself thanking Jesus for the very placement of His cross. Matthew, Mark and Luke all make note of the location: “One on his right, the other on his left.” (Mt. 27:38; Mark 15:27) It’s no secret that Jesus could have placed Himself anywhere upon that hill, but He chose to take His final breath between two criminals. He chose to make Himself accessible to both.

Isn’t access a beautiful thing?

To the “insult-hurling” criminal, access to the living Christ has the power to transfer one from a crude wooden beam to paradise all in one breath.

To the “paradise-bound” criminal, access to the power of Christ can bring paradise to earth. A whole new way of doing life. A kingdom life in the here and now.

The question I’m left asking myself tonight is a common one. How accessible am I choosing to be to the One who made it all possible? How about you?
