Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And the soldiers gambled for His clothes by throwing dice. (NLT) Luke 23:34
He fully understands the shortsightedness of the human condition. He can empathized with being sucked into evil and he was able to see past that one act and address them as valued human beings. This sight allows Jesus to see past the sins and can see our need for healing and forgiveness. Jesus is willing and eager to forgive you today.
You chose to be called the friend of sinners.
By your saving death and resurrection
free me from my sins.
May your peace take root in my heart
and bring forth a harvest of love, holiness, and truth.
