Famous Last Words
My church is doing a sermon series soon entitled 'Famous Last Words.' I was able to find this video from Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ depicting the 7 sayings of Jesus from the cross. As these phrases represented Christ's last chance to tell the world something important prior to His passing, we may take it for granted that these words are important. This film I believe did an excellent job of presenting the facts as they probably occurred historically. Because of this, the semi-graphic nature of Christ's beaten body in this video may not be for everyone. If it is not for you, that is okay - skip this post and move on to the next one. Watching this again served to remind me of the brutal nature of sin, and the extent to which Jesus had to go to save us from it. It is only by grace that some of us are lucky enough to be pulled out of our busy lives long enough to remember what happened on Calvary, the most important event in the history of mankind. Does thank you even cut it? Probably not, but I offer it to God anyway.
