Complete Trust

“Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.’ When he had said this, he breathed his last.”—Luke 23:46

These words that Jesus spoke from the cross fulfilled a prophecy from Psalm 31:5—“Into your hands I commit my spirit; deliver me, Lord, my faithful God.”

To make such a statement at the time of one’s death is a beautiful expression of complete trust. Jesus was putting his life completely in the hands of his heavenly Father.

This is the kind of faith we all need to strive for. Such a complete faith defines the life of a believer, and it understands that death is merely a welcome reunion with our heavenly Father.
