Thought of the Day March 15, 2019 Forgiveness

By 9:43 AM

As Paul reminds us: all have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God.” Since Jesus died for the sins of the world, the sins committed by everyone from Adam until the end of time, we must allow his words of forgiveness to touch our hearts and bring repentance and conversion so that we might experience the fullness of his salvation.

From the altar of the cross, Jesus was fulfilling his role as High Priest. As we read in the Letter to the Hebrews: In the days when he was in the flesh, he offered prayers and supplications with loud cries and tears to the one who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered; and when he was made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him, declared by God high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.” (Heb 5:7-10)
Or as Isaiah prophesied: “He poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” (Isaiah 53.12)

The key word of this prayer of Jesus in obviously forgiveness. (To be continued)
