While hanging on the cross, Jesus cried, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do!” (Luke 23:34) May His mind be in us, (Philippians 2:5), that we could and would forgive those who have wronged us. Also Lord, I pray, that we would do it immediately, without them even having to say they are sorry. Jesus didn’t wait for an apology and neither should we, who are in Christ.
His love is rich towards us. He died for us while we were still sinners (John 3:16), He knows how many hairs are on our head (Luke 12:7), He has great plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11)….let’s walk in joy for the freedom He gave us and the love He lavishes on us.
Help us to keep our eyes fixed on You, Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Thank You for Your word which instructs us in all righteousness. May we all adhere to Your word. Let it be applied to our lives, so that every step we take would be a perfect representation of Your great love.
