Was just reading what many will in the coming days. That of Jesus's last words "into your hands I commit my Spirit" being said to His Father.
It's so amazing to me that Jesus went through all that He did. Took the absolute worst that this world could throw at Him...all for the love of His creation.
They may beat Him...but He still loves.
They may mock Him...but He still loves.
They may ridicule Him...but He still loves.
They may nail Him to a cross...but He still loves.
They may stab Him in the side with a spear...but He still loves.
It was love for you and I that held Him there. It wasn't going to end there. His obedience made the way for that love to turn into the greatest gift ever. Eternal life.
Jesus always believes His Father. His Father gave Jesus the authority to lay down His life and to take it up again.
Jesus did what no other is capable of doing. He became the only way to Heaven. No other religion ever can claim that. All the others are dead. Jesus arose 3 days later and is ALIVE!
The Father's Plan worked. Jesus arose from the dead to prove He is both Lord and King. King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Remember that this weekend.
