Grace in the Word

Last Words: A seven Week Journey Through Lent

Welcome to the Grace in the Word
Reading Plan

Over the next seven weeks, you are invited to take part in a journey called Grace in the Word – Last Words. This will be a seven-week study walking through the last words of Jesus on the cross. This plan will take an in-depth look at each of the seven statements that Jesus made from the cross and dig into the spiritual and practical significance of each of these statements.

Grace in the Word begins on February 12th.

Last Words – Week 3

As we continue our study of the last words of Jesus, we look at the charge Jesus gives to His disciple John and the comfort that He gives to His mother, Mary. Jesus gives John the vocation of loving others by reminding him to take care of Mary when He is gone. He also pours out comfort to His mother, Mary, by telling her to look upon Him on the cross. He reminds her by calling her to look upon Him that she will be okay. He reminds her of who He is and what He brings to her and the world: hope. Reflect on these words, the call He gives to John and us to love and care for others, and the hope He gives us even when we face change.

Last Words – Week 2

This week we continue in our study of the seven last words of Jesus on the cross.

Begin this week by studying the Luke 23:43, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.” Reflect on how these words as you begin your study this week.

Last Words – Week 1

This week we begin our seven week study of the seven last words of Jesus on the cross. Throughout the next seven weeks we hope you will take time to read, reflect, and grow through the seven last words of Jesus.

Begin this week by studying the first of Jesus’ last words, “Father, forgive them.” Reflect on how these words express Jesus’ extravagant grace for us, but also the call for us to embrace radical forgiveness like Jesus.
