"The 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). In Matthew 27 : 44 , In  the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him. Whether Luke and Matthew contradicts each other regarding the robbers . No. The words of Jesus from the cross brought Godly sorrow ( 2 corinthians 7 : 10) in the robber who pleaded with Christ to remember him . Godly sorrow is one of the essential factor to induce faith in Jesus Christ. The robber overcame his physical difficulties and comprehended that Jesus is the Lord of Heaven , and Jesus 'motives is to bring the Kingdom of God in this world through Love , peace and Grace of God . That infused Godly sorrow in the robber which made him pray to Jesus to remember him in paradise which Jesus readily agreed without taking into consideration his past life. When we take a small step with Godly sorrow , He comes near us. Lord , I have understood that I am sinner who crucified you . Please forgive my sins and remember me when you come again to this world to judge us. Amen.

1 Sarah R = "Jewish theology taught in that time that the afterlife was one place divided into two sections: paradise for the righteous, and hell for the unrighteous. After Jesus died and was resurrected, some believed that Jesus went to paradise to bring the righteous up to Heaven. This belief is still taught in some churches today."

3 Sarah R = "When we believe in Jesus our sins are washed away. We are covered in His righteousness, which is perfect, and presented holy and blameless before God. This is a righteousness we could never attain on our own. This is grace."
