As we approach Good Friday, let’s remember that it’s a day that our flesh can’t possibly comprehend. Our holy God hung on a human torture and execution tool. On that day He was still fully God and yet He was also fully human… so His words of forgiveness, promise, protection, provision, agony, human need, completion, and consecration are that much more profound. Which of Jesus’ final statements moves you the most? Is it His forgiveness of the repentant criminal? His need? His suffering? Come share with us, as we reflect on Jesus’ final words on the Cross. ~ Devotionals Daily
