“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." Luke 23:34
Even as He hung on the cross, Jesus called upon the Father with these words.
Even as He was being crucified, he asked God to forgive those who were putting him to death.
What an amazing act! And what an act so beyond the scope of humanity. We were created in God's image, but do we live a life that emulates that of Jesus? It is certainly no easy feat to rise above our flesh and act in the spiritual way of Jesus, but through God all things are possible! This design reminds us that we too can be more like Jesus if we move out of his way and allow him to work in our lives.
This design was created with His name in larger letters to emphasize that what we need is more of Him, even including the flourish arcing from his name. The word "me" is deliberately made smaller, in contrast to the name of Jesus. We also chose the Next Level 6051 style raglan with sleeves in Vintage Purple as it provides a classic look, while purple is the color of royalty. And God is the King of kings!
A little reminder in our daily lives to live more like Jesus can only be a good thing.
