Final words are typically delivered with a sacred sense of weight and meaning. Each of the gospel writers record a portion of Jesus’ seven statements from the cross. These last words are intended to be a lasting message down through the ages…

To the crowd crying, “Crucify Him!”… Jesus offers forgiveness
To the thief without hope… Jesus offers a heavenly home
To the heartbroken family and friends…. Jesus offers comfort and community
To His Father in heaven… Jesus offers faithfulness and obedience

The cross provides for all those who are looking: forgiveness, hope, community, and salvation. And so at The Lift Tour 2017 we will go back to the cross and rehear, the words of our Savior once again. Jesus was “obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” and redemption is completed. So, when Jesus uttered his final words, “it is finished”, he was making it possible for my life to begin.
