Luke 23:44–46 (NKJV)

44 Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two. 46 And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’ ” Having said this, He breathed His last.

I  A word of victory.

  1. The work of obedience to His Father.
  2. The work of fighting sins and temptations and resisting the devil.
  3. The work of suffering.
  4. The work of conquest.

Colossians 2:14–15 (NKJV)

14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

II  The last word on the cross was a word of commitment.
