It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 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. (Luke 23:44-46 ESV)
Было же около шестого часа дня, и сделалась тьма по всей земле до часа девятого: и померкло солнце, и завеса в храме раздралась по средине. Иисус, возгласив громким голосом, сказал: Отче! в руки Твои предаю дух Мой. И, сие сказав, испустил дух. (От Луки 23:44-46 Russian)
O LORD my God, let everything that has breath give you the highest praise on this new day. Hallelujah! What a great, loving, brave and unselfish Savior we have in Christ Jesus our Lord. Thank you dear Father in heaven for making it possible for me to enter into your presence. It is only possible because your One and Only Son suffered, bled and died on that cruel cross there in the city where so many sacrifices have been made. Open the closed and prejudiced minds of people everywhere so that we will clearly understand that we have no hope without accepting the gift of your Son and following Christ as Lord of our lives. Shake up the numb hearts of preaching professionals and stale church overseers so that no person will say – “No one ever told me about Jesus”. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
