"Jesus said, "Father forgive them, for they know not what they are doing."
While on the cross, in the midst of his deep indescribable suffering for the sins of this world, he still could ask his Father to forgive those who crucified Him. He knew he was fulfilling His purpose. He died for us. For the forgiveness of our sins.
Do you have trouble forgiving yourselves? When you kneel at the altar on bended knee and the pastor tells you that your sins are forgiven do you truly take it in. Do you truly believe it. Do you let them go? Because THIS is why Jesus died on the cross. His blood was shed for your sins. As Marci Alborghetti expressed in the Daily Guidepost devotional, we are letting go of what is no longer ours~~what Jesus went through to take from us.
This is my blood
