Forgiveness

cross-shineby Hazel Straub

Do you wait for someone to apologize before forgiving them? They mocked, tortured and crucified Jesus without cause, while he gave his life for us. He prayed, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34) His love brought forgiveness, while wounded and dying. What amazing love! He died for our sins and forgave, not holding on to his hurt and pain.  He did not treat us as we deserved but forgave and released those who mocked and tortured him. His forgiveness makes redemption our reality.

Jesus is our example. Who do you need to forgive and let go from your judgment?
