While dying on the cross, Jesus last words were not of despair, but of hope. While being persecuted, Jesus shows compassion. While in excruciating pain, He gives forgiveness and gives grace. With his last breath, he trusts in the Father’s plan. Jesus powerful words in His last moments are an invitation for us to live with extraordinary hope. We can live out Jesus’ example when we show compassion without cause, we give grace for the undeserving and in the way we trust God’s greater plan for a new day to come.
