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.
