Heaven, How I Got Here:
The Story of the Thief on the Cross
Colin S. Smith
What if you woke up one morning knowing that it was your last day on earth? That's what happened to the thief on the cross, who died a few feet from Jesus. "Heaven, How I Got Here" is his story, told in his own words, as he looks back from Heaven on the day that changed his eternity, and the faith that can change yours.
This criminal was the least likely to be given the gift of God’s grace. He didn’t deserve it. He didn’t earn it. He hung there condemned for his sins but was given entrance into heaven that same day. From a unique perspective, witness the miracle of saving faith through the eyes of a man who discovered the full measure of God’s forgiving love.
THEN HE SAID, “JESUS, REMEMBER ME WHEN YOU COME INTO YOUR KINGDOM.” JESUS ANSWERED HIM, “I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, TODAY YOU WILL BE WITH ME IN PARADISE.” (LUKE 23:42-43 ESV)
