His Final Words Are Your New Beginning
Its Good Friday. The Son of God is giving up his life. What does he want to say to us in His final hours? What does He tell the people standing at the foot of the cross, to pass down to the ages? He speaks only seven short statements. Words of forgiveness, salvation, relationship, abandonment, distress, triumph, and reunion. Seven statements that mean everything.
In Seven-Mile Miracle, Pastor Steven Furtick shows us how Jesuss last words offer mile markers for our journey in relationship with God. Its a lifelong journey and its not always easy. But Jesus is both our guide and our destination as we travel.
Includes questions for reflection and a forty-day reading guide to Jesuss death and resurrection.
