This week we will continue in our Lenten series “The Seven Last Words of Christ” by focusing on John 19:26-27, “Woman, behold your son. Son, behold your mother.”
For a period of time while Jesus was on the cross, He was cut off from the life-giving fellowship with His Father. Yet, in the midst of this spiritual battle, Jesus noticed the grief and needs of His mother. Even from the cross, Jesus began to teach about the nature of His Kingdom. And it is this: those who believe, take care of each other in desperate times. That’s what a family does. That’s what the family of God does.
Songs we’re singing this week:
8:00 a.m. — “Children of the Heavenly Father” and “Near to the Heart of God”
10:30 a.m. — “Here For You”, “Eye of the Storm” and “The Cross Has the Final Word”
