The one cross held the Messiah, the savior of the world. The one cross cradled innocence in His last moments as He gave His life for ours.
The other two crosses held the convicted. The other two were meant to die, to take the punishment they deserved that day on the place called The Skull.
The criminals looked to the innocent that day. One joined the mocking crowd, saying “Are you not God? Save yourself!”
The other, however. He looked to the Messiah and said, “Remember me.”
With all grace, all mercy, Jesus looked towards that criminal and said, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
None of us are innocent; all of us have access to greatest grace. None of us are better than others; all of us can be redeemed.
When you wear the Three Crosses necklace by Kate Morris, remember grace. Give grace to yourself because Jesus has extended it to you, and give grace to others as they struggle through the circumstances you may or may not be able to see.
Extend abundant compassion, because that’s what Jesus did on the cross.
