The Power of Christ’s Words

Wednesday, April 1, 2015

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.—John 1:1

Christ’s passionate love for the world is evident in His statements from the Cross:

Statement One
“Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34
Do you realize that you are in need of the Father’s forgiveness?

Statement Two
“Today you will with Me in Paradise.” Luke 23:43
Have you realized and confessed Jesus as your personal Savior?

Statement Three
“Woman, behold your son.” John 19:26
Jesus is concerned for us and provides for all of us.

Statement Four
“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46
Jesus was forsaken so we don’t have to be.

Statement Five
“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.

Statement Six
“It is finished!” John 19:30
Jesus paid for our sins, and sin’s control over our lives is broken!

Statement Seven
“Into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Luke 23:46
You can entrust your life into God’s hands.

If you are reading this today and you’ve never committed your life to Jesus Christ, find out how to know God and confess Him as Your Savior and Lord.
