And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” Luke 23:42-43 (ESV)

How is it that under precisely the same circumstances one (criminal) is converted and (the other) remains dead in sins… the (same way) same sermon is heard by one (church-goer) with complete indifference… (yet) sends another (church-goer) home to pray and seek Christ.
