From Our Daily Bread-
The immoraltality Jesus offers has nothing to do with anything we DO. In fact, after giving His disciples the authority to do truly remarkable things (Luke 10:17-19), Jesus said, " Do not rejoice....that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in Heaven."
At Golgatha, an unnamed thief believed that message just in time (Luke 23:40-42). He understood that eternal life had nothing to do with what he had done-good or bad. It had to do with what Jesus was doing-giving His own life so that even the undeserving could be welcomed into heaven by God. The important thing is being remembered not by otheres, but by God.
