Broke His Heart

It flashed into this thief's soul that Jesus was the Son of God, and

that moment he rebuked his companion, saying:

"Dost thou not fear God?"

The fear of God fell upon him. There is not much hope of a man's

being saved until the fear of God comes upon him. Solomon says, "The

fear of God is the beginning of wisdom."

We read in Acts that great fear fell upon the people; that was the

fear of the Lord. That was the first sign that conviction had

entered the soul of the thief. "Dost thou not fear God?" That was

the first sign we have of life springing up.
