Grace for you today !
God answers you by awesome deeds !!
“Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” And they divided His garments and cast lots.”
Luke 23:34 NKJV
There is no way anyone can plead forgiveness for those who have done wrong willfully unless the pleader is so full of love . The more Jesus was squeezed the more the love that oozed out .
All of us in our weakest moment or sickness or tiredness or lowest times of life ,speak out words of frustration hurting the hearer.
But Jesus, while He hung on the Cross after being ruthlessly tortured, spoke these gracious words to His Father to forgive them .
This one single prayer took care of all our sins for all times whether committed in the past or present or in the future
*Willing acceptance of His forgiveness gives us the power not to sin . *
Our greatest sin is self righteousness and it blocks our willingness to receives His forgiveness. If I have to define self righteousness, the space here will be insufficient . To explain in simple terms ,expressions like “ I can , I know , I am better etc” are manifestation of self righteousness, trusting in our ability or boasting in oneself.
Let’s shun such self righteousness and accept willingly His love by receiving His forgiveness & boast in God’s Righteousness!
