Forgive!-Wednesday Word

“And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." ~Luke 23:34 ESV

Powerful words from the Lord Jesus on the Cross. As He was dying the most agonizing death possible, His focus wasn’t on Himself, but on others. Jesus’ enemies had sentenced Him to death, lied on Him, spit on Him, beat Him, and worse. Yet as Christ hung on the Cross He didn’t ask the Father to obliterate and torment His enemies, He asked the Father to forgive them. The love of God was flowing through His heart.

God has called you to let His love flow through you. People have wronged you. People have hurt you. But put the shoe on the other foot. You have wronged the Lord on many occasions. You have hurt Him several times. But He always forgives you. Who are you to not forgive someone after all Christ has forgiven you for? Let it go in Jesus’ name and move on.
