Light for My Path Daily Devotion- Words from the Cross
And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34 ESV)
Hymn ELH 337:1-2 Our Blessed Savior Seven Times Spoke
Our blessed Savior seven times spoke
When on the cross our sins He took
And died lest we should perish.
Let us His last and dying words
In our remembrance cherish.
“Father, forgive these men; for, lo,
They truly know not what they do.”
So far His love extended.
Forgive us, Lord, for we, too, have
Through ignorance offended.
Heavenly Father, teach me, in faith, to forgive as Your Son forgave even those who killed Him. Lead all who do not believe in Jesus as their only Savior to faith in Him. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
