"Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."[e] And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. (Luke 23:34)
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9).
Jesus Christ came to the earth to die for man kind so that our sins maybe forgiven. It is an essential gift He has given us. It frees us from past wrongs and gives us hope for the future. Though we hurt each other, we ultimately hurt our God.
It is that simple.
