Luke 23:39-46 (Luke 23:39-46)Rod Hillier, 25th June 2017
Part of the Great Prayers from the Bible series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
This prayer gives us a deep insight into Jesus' humanity. He was always subject to his father and always submitted. In our despair we can turn to the one who knows what is is like.

Luke 23:39–46 (Listen)
39 One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!” 40 But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” 42 And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” 43 And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
44 It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, 45 while the sun's light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46 Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last.
