Unconditional love

Jesus prayed:

Father forgive them.  They don’t know what they are doing”

(Luke 23:  The Message)

Jesus is demonstrating the true nature of God on the cross. The true nature of God is love. Jesus had been brutally beaten and then nailed to the cross. A large nail at a time had been hammered into his hands and feet yet he was able to demonstrate such unconditional love as never seen before in human history by asking his Father to forgive those who had nailed him to the cross. Jesus had suffered such agony and pain which had not been experienced by any other man before or since. Jesus loves us unconditionally and forgives us our sins.  We are to love others unconditionally and forgive them their sins, and practically serve them. We are called to demonstrate the nature of God which is love. 

Dear Jesus

I kneel beneath the cross
I see your hands and feet
Have been nailed to the cross
You are looking into my eyes
And you whisper the words to me
I love you
