He forgave you; He forgave me; He even waited for Judas Iscariot to repent for his sin to Him.

Sometimes I wondered if I were at the scene of crucifixion, would I join the crowd, the religious leaders, the Roman soldiers, and one of the atrocious criminals on the cross, to hurt and to humiliate Jesus or just shook my head or covered my eyes in contempt as I was walked away, or would I choose to stand near the cross beholding our suffering Lord Jesus with His mother, his mother’s sister, Mary (the wife of Cleophas) and Mary Magdalene? (John 19:25)

Yet my sins are totally forgiven regardless of what I did and said, and even if I had whipped him and driven the first nail into His palm, Jesus paid all for me.

Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing. (Luke 23:34)

It is easy for me to shake my finger to judge other people mercilessly with an intention to humiliate them or just to get even with them for the wrong they did to me.

Easter is not about rabbits and the colored candy eggs; it is about the resurrection of our Savior who was pierced on the cross bearing your transgression, my rebellion, and all of our carnality and depravity.

Forgive because we are forgiven on the cross by Christ (Ephesians 4:32).

We are free to live a new righteous life because Jesus is resurrected and our sin is completely washed away by Him; He justified you and me as though we have never sinned; therefore, we must forgive other people willingly as Jesus forgives us.

But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins; He was beaten so we could be whole.  He was whipped so we could be healed. (Isaiah 53:5)
