Others have spoken famous last words. But none were so meaningful as His.
"Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are
"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
"Do not be afraid."
"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me."
"Surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age."
Jesus' words and work on the cross carry a message for each of us. A message of eternal life offered up freely. Of a perfect love with no end. Of a glorious hope attained at great cost. And of a divine power that exists beyond the limitations of all flesh.
These devotional readings probe Christ's last earthly words and the biblical writers' words about the cross to reveal not only the meaning of Calvary but the heart of God. They will also give you a richer understanding of the amazing love that drove Jesus to the cross, conquering the powers of hell once and for all.
