The Power of Christ’s Words
Christ’ passionate love for the world is evident in His statements from the Cross:
“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34
Do you realize that you are in need of the Father’s forgiveness?
“Today you will with Me in Paradise.” Luke 23:43
Have you realized and confessed Jesus as your personal Savior?
“Woman, behold your son.” John 19:26
Jesus is concerned for us and provides for all of us.
“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46
Jesus was forsaken so we don’t have to be.
“I thirst!” John 19:28
This personal statement reminds us that Jesus is not only God, but He also was man. Jesus identifies with our needs.
“Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Luke 23:46
You can entrust your life into God’s hands.
