It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last.
All of heaven is holding its breath in awe and wonder as the blood is spilled, the perfect Sacrifice is finished, and the doors of heaven swing open. Because the Perfect, Innocent Lamb of God gave up his life as a sacrifice for sin, we now have the amazing future of living for eternity with the God Who loves us.
