JESUS SPEAKS FROM THE CROSS…

…Trusting the Father With His Very Being

Luke 23:46

THE SEVEN SAYINGS…
1.  “Father forgive them; for they know not what they do.”  (Luke 23:33-34).
2.  “Today shalt thou be with Me in paradise” (Luke 23:43).
3.  “Woman, behold thy son… Behold thy mother” (John 19:26-27).
4.  “My God, My God; why hast Thou forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46;  Mark15:34).
5.  “I thirst” (John 19:28).
6.  “It is finished” (John 19:30).
(7.  “Into Thy hands I commend My spirit” (Luke 23:46).

I.  THE FELLOWSHIP BETWEEN FATHER AND SON IS RENEWED.

II.  WITH THESE WORDS FROM THE CROSS JESUS IS LOOKING WITH JOY TOWARD THE GLORY (Heb. 12:2)

III.  LATER WE FIND JESUS IS GONE FROM THE TOMB IN WHICH HE WAS BURIED (Luke 24:6-7).

IV.  HE CALLS ON US TO TRUST THE FATHER JUST AS HE HAS (Psalm 37:3-5; Luke 24:44-48).

Application –
i.  Fellowship that is broken with God can be restored because of the gift of Jesus Christ;
ii.  We can with joy look to the glory we shall have with Jesus in eternity;
iii.  The evidence of Jesus in our lives is that of a changed life;
iv.  Trust God, our Father, every day through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

-Tim A. Blankenship
