My dear friends,
Whenever you have a bad thought, try to imagine Jesus entering into the same scene you're imagining.

When you try it, you would be really shocked by what your mind seemed to produce automatically. Jesus enters the scene in your mind; He would not be just hanging out but He would be hanging on the cross, and says, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."

This seemingly automatic way that Christ enters your mind makes you think that maybe He wasn't just talking about those who were executing Him as much when He said that as He was talking about every person who's ever sinned or ever will sin in thought or in action. That is what really killed Him after all!
