Gathering in Christ
And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My Spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last.
Listen to the clear, ringing voice: “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit!” The spirit of the Son of God only? No, the spirit of the whole human race incarnated in the Savior of the world. My spirit was there; your spirit was there; and by God’s mighty grace and the gift of His Spirit given by our LORD after He ascended, we can know experientially His complete salvation for body, soul, and spirit…. That understanding does not touch the depths of identification with sin to which our LORD went…. If one may put it so, God was never more pleased with His Son than when He bridged the gulf between God and man by the sacrifice of Himself.
