"Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." ~Luke 23:34
While Jesus is on the cross, He asks God to forgive those who are crucifying Him! What kind of love is this? We know that it was always God's, plan to crucify His Son, and yet, Jesus still asks God to forgive those how did. He says they did not know what they were doing. The men who crucified Jesus really thought they were honoring God, yet it was not at all honoring to Him. It was a sin!
God's plans are such a mystery! The way life is is a mystery. His sovereignty is a mystery. His love and grace so much of a mystery. Why God loves sinners is a mystery, but He does and His Son asked forgiveness for us. Lord, thank You for the mystery of Your love and grace.
