The Savior’s Last Words–Part VII

It is nearly over. Jesus has been on the cross for six hours. He has suffered the humiliation of man and the separation from God. The appointed work of salvation is finished. The law is satisfied. The substitute is accepted. The plan of redemption is complete. Jesus lifts His voice one final time. “Father, into your Hands I commit My spirit!”(Luke 23:46). With that, He breathes His last.

The pain and suffering has ceased. Jesus is now in the presence of His Father. Never again will men torture Him. Never again will He suffer shame. Never again will He be delivered into the hands of sinners. And never again must we fear death and hell.

Jesus delivered His spirit into the Hands of God. Just as in life Jesus yielded Himself to the Father, so also He relinquished Himself in death. If the Savior entrusted Himself to His Father in death, How can we not follow Him in life? Can you think of a safer place to be?

Inspired by the Sermon Notes of Pastor Gary Elliott.
