By Jesus’ Example

 

By Jesus’ Example
By Lucia K Haase
~

Jesus said,
“Father forgive them,

for they do not know what they do”

as He hung on the cross dying -

for me and for you…

When you hurt -

when you feel persecuted –

what about you??

Will you, by Jesus’ example,

show kindness to enemies??

Will you, by Jesus’ example,

learn the righteous way to be??

Will you, by Jesus’ example,

let compassion flow?

Will others see by your actions –

it’s Jesus you know??

Do not let the devil’s snare

covet your heart… be aware!

Forgive, as Jesus… in Him, grow,

and let the Christ in your heart glow

~


Then Jesus said,
“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

[Luke 23:34]

    Hi Lucia – Where would we be without God’s grace, love & forgiveness? As His followers we must learn to live as Jesus taught us; the crux of the Gospel. Powerful message beautifully written. God bless. Tom.
