Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - April 1
He Will Forgive You
Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
Matthew 6:12, nkjv
Jesus, the Lamb of God, God’s own Son, was sacrificed on the altar of a wooden Roman cross.
Normally, crucifixion victims cursed and screamed obscenities and even passed into unconsciousness from the initial pain. Jesus reacted in a stunningly different way—He prayed, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34, niv). Fifty days later when Peter preached at Pentecost, Jesus’ prayer was answered when some of the very men who crucified Him repented of their sins, placed their faith in Him, and were baptized in His Name!
If God could forgive the men who nailed His Son to the Cross, why do you think He won’t forgive you?

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:
• The choice to listen
• The choice to forgive
• The choice to pray
