    The final word of Jesus from the cross was, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” This was not just a final word of faith and trust; it was how Jesus lived his life. Jesus placed his life in God’s hands which was why every day his hands reflected the hands of his Father. We reflect on all that the hands of Jesus did leading up the cross and the different ways our hands can reflect the hands of God.

    Of all the final words Jesus spoke from the cross, there is really just one word that is spoken directly to the church.
