Luke 23

Father, thank You for Jesus and the life I have in Him!

****************************************************************************

“… FATHER, FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.”

You knew ahead of time ALL that would be done to You, Jesus.  That’s what may have moved You somewhat to plead with Your Father for a less-painful way to do what must be done (Luke 22:42).  You knew how You’d be treated by the very humans You came to save and set free.

That day so long again held the most horrible physical pain for You.  You let Yourself be nailed to that cross because You chose to be the sacrifice for all sin for all time — including mine.  Oh, Jesus, thank You!  Thank You for dying for me.  Thank You for saving me.  Thank You for loving me … all the way to the cross!  Amen.
