Darth: Now go…leave me.
Luke: No, you’re coming with me. I’ll not leave you here. I’ve got to save you!
Darth: You already have, Luke.
I love this scene. I love how much grace and redemption and forgiveness is packed into these few short moments. I love Darth Vader’s line…you already have, Luke.
Darth could say this because there was somebody in his life who had not given up on him. Luke refused to write his father off as a lost cause. Luke was willing to look beyond the countless sins of his father and see a person worth fighting for. He never gave up hope.
So, is there someone in your life today who needs to know that you will not give up on them? And, even more…that Christ has not given up on them!
