Title: “The Word of Trust” 4/7/19

Text: Luke 23:44-47

Luke 23:44-47 “By this time it was about noon, and darkness fell across the whole land until three o’clock.

45The light from the sun was gone. And suddenly, the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn down the middle.

46Then Jesus shouted, “Father, I entrust My spirit into Your hands!” And with those words He breathed His last.

47When the Roman officer overseeing the execution saw what had happened, he worshiped God and said, “Surely this man was innocent.”

  • Jesus gave up His life voluntarily.
  • Jesus gave up His life reverently.
  • Jesus gave up His life confidently.

  • You have a Father in heaven who loves you.

  • YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER CAN BE TRUSTED.

How big are God’s hands?

  • Big enough to bless you

Isaiah 62:3 “The Lord will hold you in His hand for all to see – a splendid crown in the hand of God.”

  • Scarred enough to never forget you

Isaiah 49:15-16 “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!

16See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands…”

  • Strong enough to keep you secure

John 10:28-29 “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of My hand.

29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all[; no one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand.”

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal.  It is the courage to continue that counts.” ~ Winston Churchill
