OK! Picture this if you will…
Christ was beaten, spit upon, humiliated and tortured in every way they could think of, before going to the cross. They nailed Him to the cross with very large spikes. The pain and torment He felt was way beyond imagination. Yet, one of the first things He said was “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Think about that.
After all they did, even in the moment, Christ forgave them for their sins. If He can forgive them at a time like that, after all they had done to Him, why would you hesitate to believe He can and will forgive you?
Here’s a couple of verses to think about:
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
“As far as the east is from the west, so far does He remove our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12
Pray earnestly and believe! You can be forgiven!
