Father forgive them...

Sometimes we wonder if we've finally sinned in such a way that God is just done with us, won't love us the same, won't bless us the same, won't be in relationship with us the same way ever again.

But it's hard to imagine that you could do anything worse than nailing Jesus to the Cross. And yet when that happened to Him, His heart was set on forgiveness of those committing the sin.

His lovingkindness endures forever; praise Him.

In looking at the text, there appears to be many different groups around Jesus. Who was He asking the father to forgive, the priests, the onlookers, the Italians who nailed him to the tree or the two criminals with him?
