7 Last Words of Jesus: I Commit My Spirit


Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. — Luke 23:46

Jesus said, ‘no one can take My life unless I lay it down willingly.’

Jesus’ life was never taken away, but He willingly committed it, paying the ultimate price. The sinless Jesus took on the sins of humanity that we might be pure once again.The devil thought he had succeeded by killing God’s chosen one, not knowing that he was bringing Jesus into the fulfillment of His purpose and mission.

God allowed Jesus to endure, but never left Him. Jesus knew the power He had and to where He was going. When we give our lives to God’s hands, He will do what we cannot. He never left us and never will! Three days later, He rose from bodily death, and with all power!
