We should always choose our words carefully. They have the power to bring life and death. When Jesus was being flogged and beaten, he chose to remain silent. When he was dying on the cross, he chose to remain silent. There must have been a thousand words he wanted to speak out, but chose his words carefully. In the end, there were three words he spoke, just before he breathed his last:
"It is Finished."
These are the words that can bring us all Life.
They were Jesus last words, before he died, but the irony is that they offer us the chance to LIVE again.
