One of His dying statements has always especially captivated me.
And why would He do this when they would only continue hating Him? I can almost hear them say: “We know EXACTLY what we are doing and despise you even more!!!”
He taught us to pray, “Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors” Matthew 6:12 (NIV). And then, on the cross He actually prayed for God to forgive those who crucified Him.
STRENGTH FOR THE JOURNEY
I still don’t know what all is behind His final act of goodness and love. But I do know this. I would give everything to be in the family He leads.
