"Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit." (Luke 23:46)
Allow me to make three observations in applying this short verse today.
#1--As Jesus dies on the cross, He offers His life completely unto the
Father. He holds nothing back as He releases His spirit into the
Father's care. Jesus trusts the Father perfectly.
#2--With this statement, Jesus confirms the reality of life beyond
death. There is a Father God with whom our spirit dwells. The Father
can be trusted.
#3--Jesus dies with scripture on His lips. This sentence is a direct
quote of Psalm 31:5. I would suggest you take the time to read the
entire Psalm sometime today. It's about trusting God in our time of
"Pray, and let God worry." --Martin Luther
