The Seven Statements of Christ - part 5, 6, 7

The fifth statement Christ made was one of  IDENTIFICATION.

Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty." John 19:28

Christ was thirsty because he was not only God but he was fully human. Because he was fully human, he can identify with us in every way - with every need we will ever have.

The sixth statement Christ made was one of INVITATION.

When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30

The job he came to do was complete.

The seventh statement Christ made was one of INVINCIBILITY.

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

After Jesus paid the debt we owed, the Father embraced the Son and accepted Him for all eternity. 

Remember to celebrate the Risen Savior not just at Easter but everyday of the year.
