“Christ as He hung on the cross was able to continue to focus on others. While most men would have been thinking about themselves in self-pity Jesus was still thinking of others.
He said to his mother, “Woman, behold your son.” And to John, “Behold your mother.” To paraphrase, Take care of my mother.
Later he said, “Forgive them for they know not what they do.” (See the Gospel of John) Jesus even brought someone to the Lord while he hung on the cross. He was evangelizing.
…many Christians look for the ideal situation to lead people to the Lord, yet Christ did it under the worst of conditions.”
