00664 - The Last Seven Words Of Jesus

From the cross, the seven last words of Jesus teach our Christian journey today. “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34 NLT). Jesus' plea for our forgiveness, even in the face of unimaginable suffering, sets a precedent for us, urging us to extend grace and forgiveness to others, regardless of the circumstances.

These words invite us to reflect on our relationship with God and others, encouraging us to live lives marked by forgiveness, trust, and a commitment to fulfilling God’s purpose. In embracing these principles, we honour Jesus' sacrifice and embody the essence of His teachings in our daily lives.

When Jesus said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit” (Luke 23:46 NLT), He showed ultimate trust amidst agony and abandonment, encouraging us to place our lives, fears, and hopes in God’s hands, especially during our worse and darkest hours.


Our highest attainment in life is to live out the message of Jesus.


Lord, thank You for your sacrifice, for your mercy and grace. Amen.
