The Seven Last Words of Christ

All of the words that Jesus utters on the cross are said to each of us. We need to heed them because they each have to do with our personal relationship with the Lord. May we be mindful of these words. Let us meditate on them as we continue through this Holy Week. May they help us to understand and experience the true meaning of Easter.

 1. “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:24)

The words Jesus says to his Father he is saying for us. Our God is a loving and forgiving God. He did not come to condemn us but to forgive us. He is always willing to forgive us as long as we ask for that forgiveness.

 2. “Today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43)

This is what Jesus wants… not simply for the repentant thief, but for all of us. We too can be repentant thieves. It is in acknowledging out sinfulness and seeking Jesus’ forgiveness that the gates of heaven are opened for us.

 3. “Woman, this is your Son. Son, this is your mother.” (John 19:26-27)

Just as Jesus gave his mother to John, so he gives her to each of us. She is there to care for us, to pray for us, to beseech her son on our behalf. She wants nothing more than to lead us to her son.

 4. “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:4)

So often we feel that God has forsaken us, that he has abandoned us. We know that God did not abandon his son, but saw him through to the end, to resurrection. No matter how difficult things seem at times, God will not abandon us. He will raise us to new life.

 5. “I thirst.” (John 19:28)

Jesus thirsts for us. He wants us to be one with him and his Father in heaven. This is the reason why he came, why he suffered and died and rose from the dead.

 6. “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” (Luke 24:26)

May we repeat these words of Christ in the final hours of our life. May these words come easily as a result of living a faith-filled life in union with Jesus.

7. “It is finished.” (John 19:30)

Words again that hopefully we can utter as we journey to the end of our lives. Words we can say because we have fulfilled God’s will and have accomplished what God wanted us to accomplish here on earth.
