Today Suzie and I attended the Good Friday worship service at First Baptist Church in West Palm Beach. We really enjoy our pastor, Dr. Jimmy Scroggins. The service was centered on the 7 sayings of Jesus from the cross. Here are the 7 sayings:
- When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” (John 19: 26-27)
- “I thirst (John 19: 28).”
- “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do (Luke 23:34).”
- “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise (Luke 23:43).”
- “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34)
- Father, into your hands I commit my spirit (Luke 23:46).
- “It is finished (John 19:30).”
