this will probably turn into some sort of list, as many of my stories do. off the top of my head, here are my two favourites:
luke 12:32 --
32 "Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
luke 23:39-43 --
39 One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, "Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!" 40 But the other rebuked him, saying, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong." 42 And he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." 43 And he said to him, "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise."
