SERMON OUTLINE:

1. One of Luke's Most Important Messages

2. The Scene

3. Paradise

4. Today

5. Salvation

6. It's Never Too Late
NEXT STEPS:

1. Think of someone in need of Jesus' salvation. (Perhaps yourself.)

2. Pray that he or she would accept Jesus' invitation.
GROWTH GROUP / PERSONAL REFLECTION QUESTIONS

1. Luke 23:32-43 includes multiple people - soldiers and religious leaders - mocking Jesus. What does this mockery reveal about the attitudes toward Jesus in that moment?

2. What stands out to you about the debate between the two thieves on the cross with Jesus?

3. How do you usually describe "salvation?"

4. Jesus says to one of the criminals "Today you will be with me in paradise." What does this teach us about salvation?

5. Does Jesus' promise here challenge your ideas of how someone is saved? If so, in what ways?

6. Can you think of someone who is in need of Jesus' salvation? Pause to pray for that person, as a group or individually.
