Last words from the Cross | Forgiveness
Lent series at First Presbyterian | My sermon notes
Jesus wasn't the only one being crucified that day. There were two others, criminals, who were also being led to their execution.
When they came to the place known as “The Skull,” they crucified Jesus there, in the company of criminals, one to the right of Jesus and the other to His left.
Jesus: Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they’re doing.
Meanwhile they were drawing lots to see who would win Jesus’ clothing.
God's grace is boundless and there's nothing you have to do to deserve it. There's nothing we can do because we all fall short.
"God is a perfect God. We are an imperfect people." ~ Pastor preaching
Jesus prayed an intercessory prayer before those who crucified Him even understood that they were killing God.
You don't have to know or understand. And there's nothing you can do that doesn't fall under God's great heart of forgiveness.
If you are forgiven with God's open arms, who do you need to forgive?
Who do you need to forgive?
