Jesus made an impact on many people on the day of His crucifixion.
Simon of Cyrene, just coming into town, was chosen to carry His cross.
The large group of women, likely hired to weep and mourn, were cautioned by Him to weep for themselves and the days ahead.
The religious rulers scoffed at him. Soldiers mocked him. They cast lots for His clothing and the two criminals who were being put to death along side him joined in making fun of Jesus.
A sign was hung over His head, "King of the Jews."
They taunted Him. "Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!"
And Jesus said, "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do."
And then one of the two criminals who was about to die realized it was true, Jesus was the King. He was His King. His words are the words of a man truly impacted by Christ, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong." And he said, "Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom."
And Jesus said the same thing he says to us when we repent and believe in Him, "Truly, I say to you, (today) you will be with me in Paradise."
