Words of Confidence

March 23, 24 Luke 23:44-46 * Jesus taught us with his last words from the cross that we can place our confidence in the Father's (presence). * Jesus was no (victim). He was in control the whole time, even on the cross. * God says that you can trust his (promises). * Why then, is it so hard to put your life and eternal destiny in the hands of a Heavenly Father who has never once abandoned one of His (own children)? * When God sees you, he sees (His Son) not your sins.
