The final statement made by Jesus while on the cross.

Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last, (Luke 23:46, ESV).

His final breath, a triumphant shout declaring to the world that He had been restored to His Father after atoning for human sin. 

He was pierced in the side to confirm death.  He was sealed in an airless tomb.  Dead.

Sunday’s coming.

  1. MUSHROOMS

    What's the outcome of this day
    Did it really make it's mark
    Upon a world so closed to Him
    That they prefer life in the dark
    Like mushrooms thriving in the gloom
    They're fed a load of tasty dung
    Which stops them looking for the light
    That shines from what The Saviours done.

    We're the carriers of this light
    Through us He's supposed to shine
    Easter's so familiar
    The message sadly fades with time
    Let us take His sacrifice
    To live the victory that He's won
    Pick those mushrooms from their grave
    And bathe them in the glorious Son.
