THE WORD OF FORGIVENESS
When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified Him, along with the criminals–one on His right, the other on His left. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:33-34
Father, what a lesson our Lord taught us in His first cry from the cross! We see the great loving heart of Christ as He prayed for those who were putting Him to death. In a sense, He is practicing what He preached when He told us to “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Our Lord‘s enemies had just driven nails into his body, and He asked You to forgive them. We’ve come to Calvary‘s cross to be shown the way to forgive. Help us, Lord! We too are frequently sinned against, but may we also seek to be forgiving, and, in so doing, set an example for others. We ask this in Jesus’ name.
Sincerely Yours, Gene McGuire
