“Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. ” Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.””
Luke 23:42-43 NIV
While one of the criminals being executed decided to be consistent with his character and continued hurling insults at Jesus, this other one decided to break character and asked to be remembered by Jesus.
I’ve found it is more important to be known by important people than us knowing them. Technically I’ve known the last four presidents of the USA, many celebrities, and even trascendental figures. The question is not if I know them, but if they know me.
To be known by God is a game changer. It speaks of intimacy, communion, and transparency. God wants to be known, he walks in our midst regulatory just as he did with Adam and Eve in the garden. Much like them it is us who decide to hide from God and keep ourselves to ourselves.
Let us come to the open and be who we really are in front of our Maker, our Father, and our God.
