Father Forgive Them III

April 24, 2011

Today is resurrection Sunday. He is risen!! Luke 24:1-12

We learn from Jesus' conquest of death that He has conquered man's greatest enemy, death. There is not a problem in your life too great that He cannot handle - especially the one of our sin account that we are answerable for.

Father Forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.

From the words of Jesus on the cross, 'Father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing,' we learn that we must:

- Call on the Father when in distress

- Forgive others regardless of the offense. Rom 12:17-19 God promises to take up the case if we leave it to Him.

- Make a good excuse for others in order to be able to forgive them genuinely from the heart. Jesus while being crucified excused the people as not knowing what they were doing, and prayed the Father to forgive them.
