Why are these Cross Words important? Because we all have somebody we need to forgive.

1. These words are significant because they fulfill prophecy.
2. These words are significant because they changed our posture toward justice and forgiveness.
A. My posture before Jesus was that you owe me and justice is mine.
B. My posture after Jesus is that God forgave me so I can forgive you.
