I am a sinner

I always assumed that when Christ said "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do", that He was referring to "them" – the unsaved, the lost, those who are of the world, those who mock Christ, etc.

What a revelation in realising that He was, in fact, referring to me – a sinner.

See, just because I have "found" Christ doesn't make me a better person than the one who hasn't, it just makes me redeemed, forgiven, a receiver of grace and hope.

But at the end of the day, that is exactly what it is: GRACE and LOVE and FORGIVENESS…a Saviour, a King that died for me while I was still a sinner. That knew I would fail and fall and therefore pleaded with His Father to forgive me for I know not what I do.

How beautiful is the heart of Jesus.
