Lenten Reflections: Jesus is Crucified

Jesus is Crucified

1-Christ on Cross front-3-CDSCF3450-2

Luke 23: 33-34 (NIV):

When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left.  Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”


Can you imagine having these in your hands, your feet?  The Romans were experts on pain and we clearly see that with the brutal reality of crucifixion.  

Even in this place of excruciating pain, Christ chose to forgive.  Are there any in your life whom you need to forgive?


Father, your Son was put on display and shamed by those he came to save.  Yet, he still chose to forgive those same people.  Help me to become the kind of person who chooses forgiveness.
