It's okay to say, "I'm sorry", even to Jesus for what He has done for us. We are so busy saying, "I'm glad" that we forget the pain that He went through for us......ALL of His life. It is a memory for Him. In Luke 16, the story of the rich man and the beggar, Abraham says to the rich man, "Son, REMEMBER (Luke 16:25) We take our memory with us. Why would Jesus forget what He went through for us? I really don't think that God threw that 'as far as the East is from the West'. He does that for our sins when we repent.
I believe that Jesus showed us an example in Luke 16 to show us that there just may be some hard-hearted people who will still try to use us and defame us even in eternity. Some just cannot say, "I'm sorry" because they don't think that you deserve it. The rich man was still trying to use Lazarus after treating him horribly in real time! And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus.....(Luke 16:24) SEND Lazarus??? Lazarus was STILL beneath him in his own mind, even in Hell when he , (the rich man) lifted up his eyes and begged for mercy! Even in Hell your enemies will attempt to defile your name!
