In the final moments of Jesus’ life on earth, He surrenders His spirit to the Father. His trust is in the Father. This is another example He sets for us…to put our trust in the Lord and surrender to Him. He is our strength. He is our Redeemer. Continue reading “I Commit My Spirit”
The cross. The crucifixion. Jesus. His love. His sacrifice. His humility. God’s Will. Salvation for all. Jesus went through a horrible death for you and me. He suffered. He was beaten. He was tortured. He was betrayed. He was forsaken. He wasn’t killed; He gave His life. It was God’s plan. This would redeem us. It would save us from our sins. We would be declared righteous by His blood, by His sacrifice, by His love and forgiveness. Because of this, we can have eternal life if we believe and trust in Him.
Every event and every word that He spoke on this dark day would have significance. It would teach us something. It would reveal something about Him. The gospels record seven phrases that Jesus spoke on the cross. For the next few posts we will discuss the words and events during the Crucifixion. Feel free to add comments on what these words and events mean to you.

It is my prayer that all of my friend, family and readers understand this. I pray that God gives me the understanding as I read (and write). I find that it is such a joy to learn about Him and I hope you will too. Continue reading “Only Jesus”
