God's Promise Through the Two Crosses

Chapter 6
I Will Let You Choose

In every age of history, on every page of scripture, the truth is revealed: God allows us to make our own choices...

God gives eternal choices, and these choices have eternal consequences.

Isn't this the reminder of Calvary's trio? Ever wonder why there were two crosses next to Christ? Why not six or ten? Ever wonder why Jesus was in the center? Why not on the far right or far left? Could it be that the two crosses on the hill symbolize one of God's greatest gifts? The gift of choice...

There are times when God sends thunder to stir us. There are times when God sends blessing to lure us. But then there are times when God sends nothing but silence as he honors us with the freedom to choose where we spend eternity.

How could two men see the same Jesus and one choose to mock him and the other choose to pray to him? I don't know, but they did.

And when one prayed, Jesus loved him enough to save him. And when the other mocked, Jesus loved him enough to let him.

He allowed him the choice.

He does the same for you.

(Excerpt from He Chose the Nails page 53, 55, 56)
