Words on the Cross

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.
