From the album REMEMBER ME
Luke 23:39-43 (NIV2011)
39 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”
40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence?
41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”
42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”
43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
This song investigates how the thief may have felt leading and during his crucifixion on that cross at the place of the Skull (Golgotha). It starts with him mentioning and admitting being a sinner not at all different from any one else; guilty that of a sinner, not of any specific one. And thanks to the Holy Spirit, I was able to put myself in his position and feel what he may have felt from the knowledge of seeing his last sunrise to nearing the end right before the soldiers were tasked to break his knees. In his eleventh hour, he was able to defend the faith, ask for forgiveness, prove his faith and receive salvation.
Remember me when You come into Your kingdom; remember when You talk to Your Father
Tell Him that I know I’m nothing or what He wants me to be; but Master please REMEMBER me
