It was now about the sixth hour,
and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour,
because the sun was obscured;
and the veil of the temple was torn in two.
And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.”
Having said this, He breathed His last.
Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began praising God, saying,
“Certainly this man was innocent.”
And all the crowds who came together for this spectacle,
when they observed what had happened,
began to return,beating their breasts.
And all His acquaintances and the women
who accompanied Him from Galilee were standing at a distance, seeing these things.
On this first day of Lent I am contemplating all that Jesus went through so that we would be able to live with Him forever in heaven. I will continue to write more about this as we approach Easter, the day we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead.
Beloved, no matter what terrible things are going on in your life, hold on to your Hope! There is more to life than what we have here on earth!
