The Third Word
Sunday, February 28th, 2021 - 12:00 pm
Perhaps one of the most heart wrenching scenes at the crucifixion was the scene of a mother watching her son in agonizing pain. Parents should never have to be witnesses of such horrors. Knowing the residual pain and trauma of witnessing this, Jesus calls down to his mother and one of his disciples. He utters words that would lead to the disciple taking care of the mother of Jesus. Jesus third word from the cross is a word that compels us to be in service to one another as an enduring legacy flowing out of the ministry of Jesus.
- John 19:25-27
