The Living Hope with Pastor P.M. Smith

The Father's Forgiveness

March 24, 2013
Jesus loved us so much that when they nailed him to the cross at Calvary he told his Father in Heaven to forgive them because they really don’t know what they are doing.  Jesus could have told God to get them good because they beat him until he was unrecognizable.  Then they nailed him to the cross.  No, Jesus didn't mention any of that!  He wanted us to be forgiven, to wipe our slate clean, and pardon us.  Most people want revenge and will tell you that they hate you. Jesus didn't do that because he was on a mission. God in human flesh walked among us and showed us how to live the Christian Life.  To complete his mission he had to forgive us for what we did to him (past, present and future sins).  His LOVE exceeds his anger towards us.  WOW that’s LOVE.

About Pastor P.M. Smith

As a youngster, P.M. Smith, desired to be a lawyer. But after completing law school and achieving success as a formidable criminal attorney, there was still a void in his heart. He fulfilled the call on his life and left the legal profession in 1983 to preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and serve as full-time pastor of Huber Memorial Church in Baltimore, Maryland. Winning cases was something he did well, but winning souls for the Lord is what he does best!


Under his leadership, the church has developed a strong and vital teaching ministry for all ages and a Christian co-educational school, H.O.P.E. Academy. He is the recipient of numerous awards and citations, and is a visible shepherd and servant in the community. He and his wife Delores have two children, Tehma & Ade.

Pastor Smith encourages every Child of God, every Soldier of the Cross of Christ to...don't compare...don't complain...don't compete...don't quit...Just Continue!
