Forgiveness

Soon Christians around the world will celebrate the day that Jesus arose from the dead. For the next few days we will talk about Jesus’ death and His resurrection.
Imagine that you have a son. He is your only child. You love him so much. This son never does anything wrong. He grows up to be a humble, honest, kind, helpful, wonderful man. Now imagine that people tease your son. They bring your son before a judge. The judge says that your son must die.
Imagine that you watch all this happen. Your heart is breaking. Then, when the people start to kill your son, he says to you, “These people don’t understand what they are doing. Please forgive them.”
Wow! It would be very hard to forgive those people. But God, Who is Jesus’ Father, forgave the people who killed Jesus.
God wants to forgive you, too. Ask Him to forgive you today.
