Several men stand side-by-side, facing the firing squad. Shots blast through the air, the men fall to the ground. With his last breath, one man turns to the other next to him and says, “Remember me when you become president!”
—*record scratching noise*
What?! What did this guy say? Remember him when he becomes president?? To the man laying on the ground with only moments left to live? Completely ridiculous! Ludicrous! Unfathomable! And yet that’s what happened. This man had some kind of amazing faith!
The second man responded, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:39-43)
