It is said that you can learn a lot about someone from the final words they speak. Such words have the potential to reveal a great deal about the life that they lived and the legacy they hoped to leave behind. It is notable that the four Gospel accounts of the crucifixion contain seven final sayings spoken by Jesus. In addition to revealing his agony, these cries from the cross give us an insight into the meaning and purpose of Jesus’ life and death.
Accordingly, as we seek to walk the way of the cross this Holy Week, you’re invited to use these famous last words of Jesus to frame your journey. Alongside our Good Friday Stations of the Cross services, we will be sharing a series of reflections focusing on a different saying each day. As you hear these words, and travel through Holy Week, my prayer for you is that you would receive a fresh glimpse of God’s love for you revealed on the cross of Christ.
God bless, Garreth
