Read Luke – Chapter 23
As you reflect on the agony of Jesus's death reading through Luke chapter 23, maybe you have thoughts of times you’ve been treated unfairly by people who didn’t understand you, treat you fairly or value you.
Do you see the pain this causes you as an opportunity to join Jesus in suffering and offer undeserved forgiveness to the people who hurt you, or have you opted instead to hold on to pain and become bitter?
Forgiveness is one of those upside down ways to live in God’s Kingdom. Rarely is it easy. Thankfully, Jesus promises to be with us through the process. Holy Spirit transforms our hearts empowering us to forgive.
What step do you need to take toward forgiveness today? Ask Jesus to heal your hurt and give you the courage to forgive.
