Luke 23:34 And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments.
My wife once said that forgiveness is the greatest word in the Bible, I countered with “Grace is” because with out Grace there would be no forgiveness. Of course as humble as I know how I pointed to the scripture, Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace. However as we near celebration day of our Lords resurrection, I find myself drawn to the Luke 23:34 text. And with fresh elimination I see that both Grace and Forgiveness are tied together by a band of love, read the event concerning the “Sinful Woman” in Luke 7:36-50; see don’t you agree, and if you do don’t tell my wife.
