The 7 Last Words of Jesus: Word 7

“Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” Luke 23:46.

A prayer. Perhaps the greatest prayer anyone could ever pray. This, the last of the 7 last words of Christ, sums up all of what we term “redemption”. Redemption, justification, salvation, Christian living, whatever part of the thing we’re talking about can be summed up easily with these few words. My life, your life, ought to be no more complicated than this sentiment. Having said that I’ll end here rather than risk complicating, and so defacing, the beauty and truth of simplicity.
