THE WORDS OF CHRIST FROM THE CROSS

"Father forgive them, for they know not what they do" (Luke 23:34).

"Truly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in paradise" (Luke 23:43).

"Woman, behold your Son: behold your mother" (John 19:26-27).

"My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me" (Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34).

"I thirst" (John 19:28).

"It is finished" (John 19:30).

"Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit" (Luke 23:46).

Each statement made by Jesus on the cross is like a post that we see sometimes on the side of the road that reads "Power Line Buried Here" - - and if you dig down, sure enough, you're going to strike power. Those words of Christ are a source of energy into which all of us can tap.
