Luke chapter 23 verse 34: “Then Jesus said, ‘Father forgive them for they do not know what they do,’ and they divided his garments and cast lots.”
The hour was late. The day would soon come to an end. The sun was going to become dark, and the earth would soon shake. As Isaiah the prophet once said, ‘fearfulness has surprised the hypocrites.’ Only one voice is recorded crying out for the forgiveness of an indifferent society which is about to pass through a very fearful time.
As our days grow darker, may heaven record that our voices join that of Christ, asking for mercy on a society so blinded to its own imminent peril. God answered His prayer for you and I. May He now answer ours for those who still need to be forgiven.
It’s time to pray!
