Famous last words

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 31 (day one)
“Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O Lord, the God of truth.”  (vs 5)  It is instructive.  Listening to the last words that people speak.  Words of regret like those of Benedict Arnold.  “Let me die in the uniform in which I fought for freedom.  God forgive me for ever putting on another.”  (Just moments before he was hanged for being a spy)  Words of love lost like those of Desi Arnaz.  “I love you too, honey.  Good luck with your new show.”  (to his former wife, Lucille Ball)  They give us a glimpse of the inner man, the hidden priorities.  As we prepare this week for Easter, how glad we are that our Lord’s last words were words of confidence in the Scripture.  He quoted Psalm 31.  Words of deep trust in the Father.  “Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit”. (Luke 23:46)  O Come let us adore Him.  Happy Easter!
