Into your hands - FullSizeRender
Tracy Taylor Davis

The last words of Christ from the Cross is the surrender of his bodily life to the hands of the Father.

And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.  Jesus called out with a loud voice, Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last.

Again there are echoes of the Psalms (31:5)

Into your hands I commit my spirit;
    deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.

These are words that remind us that this world is not the only one there is!

These words are wonderfully peaceful words to utter at the time of death. They are also words we can say each night before sleep.

Into Your hands I commit my spirit, Lord. In life and in death, I belong to You!
