Sermon: “Love Has Won” from Marc Swenson

Dan Mitchum - March 24, 2024

Words of Forgiveness

We’ll hear Jesus speak His first words from the cross. After being beaten, whipped, mocked, and ridiculed, He prays to His Father in Heaven. His prayer isn’t for Himself—it's for them. He prays for those persecuting Him. And what does He ask the Father to do to them? “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” [Luke 23:34] Even while experiencing excruciating pain, Jesus was still filled with grace and mercy. He prayed for them—as He prays for us.

Scripture References: Luke 23:1-25, Luke 23:32-34

From Series: "Jesus' Last Words"

If you could choose your final words, what would they be? Most certainly, they would express love and gratitude for family and friends. You’d carefully select them to bring blessing to all who heard. Jesus spoke His final words from the cross. In the six hours of His death, He uttered seven sayings that have forever changed our lives and the world. He spoke of forgiveness, salvation, affection, anguish, suffering, victory, and contentment. It is in these dying words that Jesus promises us new life. In this series, we’ll explore Jesus’ final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross.
