Forgiveness. Forgiveness has never been more graphically communicated than what we see on the Cross. Jesus stopped at nothing to make sure that we could experience the forgiveness that God is offering through a relationship with Jesus Christ. After being nailed to the cross, Jesus prays to the Father and says, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Forgiveness is powerful. For those that have been forgiven a great debt, the weight and pressure are instantly lifted. Sometimes we carry unforgiveness around like great boulders in our backpack.
On Good Friday, we are going to remember what Christ did on the Cross and recall what it is like to be forgiven. The message of the Cross is that no matter how far you have roamed, you have NOT gone too far to where God won’t offer forgiveness. He wants to forgive you!
