“In Your Hands”

In verse 46 of our Bible Reading, we learn that before Jesus died, He said to God, “Father, I put my life in your hands!” However you say it — spoken language, sign language or written language — it is wonderful!
This was not the first time that Jesus said something like this. When He was only twelve years old, Jesus told Mary and Joseph, “I must be where my Father’s work is” (Luke 2:49b). When Jesus was an adult He said, “The Father and I are one” (John 10:30). Now, as Jesus is dying on the cross, He says that He completely gives Himself to God.
Many people wait until they are dying to become serious about God. When we are twelve years old, we would rather play. When we are thirty-three, we would rather earn money. When we are dying, we are finally ready to think about God. But, usually that is too late! By that time, we have wasted our lives serving the devil instead of God.
Give yourself to God today. Don’t wait! Start now to serve God for the rest of your life.
