"Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots." Luke 23:34
Forgiveness is a virtue, and its importance is demonstrated as Jesus’ first words from His lips when He was crucified. God wants to show His love for us; in fact, Jesus prayed and asked His Father to forgive His enemies so we could see the loving heart of the Father for all mankind. His forgiveness is not some general thought; the cross is His “classified” ad to us! If we would meet Him at the cross today, ask forgiveness for all of our sins, and turn away from our old life and turn totally to Him – He says, “All is forgiven! Love, God the Father.”
