March 24

“Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34 (NIV)

Jesus spoke several times during his crucifixion – very meaningful words such as those in this verse. He spoke while they were actually crucifying Him – a time of awful physical suffering. He was praying for those who had driven the nails into his hands and feet but also for those who had delivered Him up to be crucified. Just think that at a time like that He could pray that they be forgiven. What a vision this gives us of His forgiving attitude toward all of us. We realize that our sins nailed Him to the cross. Jesus prays for us as we put our trust in Him
