This week we continue our sermon series “Last Words” as we look at the final seven sayings of Jesus from the cross. In His final hours as He suffered and died, Jesus looked to His mother Mary with compassion and to His disciple John with a calling and a responsibility.
In that moment, with the sin of the world resting on His shoulders, Jesus wanted to ensure that His mother would be well taken care of after He was gone. Not only this, but He wanted John to know that it was now his responsibility to care for her, as they are truly family. Christ’s words to His mother and to John reveal to us some powerful truths. Not only does Jesus care deeply about our specific needs but the tie that connects us as believers runs much stronger than we might think.

This Sunday, March 10th, we will continue with Part 2 in our series about the seven things Jesus said on the cross. We will be joined by Wycliffe missionary to Asia, Craig Clendinen as we look at the second thing Jesus said on the cross: "Today you will be with me in paradise." What are the implications to the repentant sinner? What wonderful promises did these words have to the thief who acknowledged his sin to Jesus?
Learn how the Gospel is spreading in Asia against fierce opposition as the power of forgiveness is on display in this passage and in action through the Wycliffe ministry to unreached people groups.

“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
What an incredibly powerful prayer Jesus offers to the Father on behalf of those who have just crucified him. Can you imagine what that scene must have been like? What thoughts would have gone through your mind had you been there to hear Jesus speak those words?
This week we begin a new sermon series entitled “Last Words.” And for the next seven weeks, leading up to Easter we will take a closer look at the final seven sayings of Jesus from the cross. There is so much for us to see wrapped up in His final words, and so much that happened in His final hours. All of human history before that day, was building towards it, and every day since has been affected by it!
