The Power of Christ’s Words - Greg Laurie Daily Devotion - April 13, 2017

The Power of Christ’s Words

Christ’ 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

“Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Luke 23:46

You can entrust your life into God’s hands.
