Father, into your hands I commit my spirit - Jesus

Father, into your hands I commit my spirit – Jesus

Many years ago I heard Tony Campolo share the audio of his own pastor, S.M. Lockridge’s message. You can find it here

It is one of the most inspiring messages I have ever heard, and all the more so when life is hard and there doesn’t seem to be any breakthrough. When it feels as though evil is winning.

The story of Jesus is our promise that however tough things are right now, it can’t last because the reason Jesus died was so that we could live, and more than just live – live abundantly. Over the years, I have learned to look to Him whether life is good or bad, hard or easy, whether I feel strong or weak. When people do that, restoration always wins.

Jesus lives, and because He lives, our lives can be transformed.

Good Friday isn’t the end. Sunday’s a’comin.
