Last Request

Jesus was born in a borrowed manger. He preached from a borrowed boat. He entered Jerusalem on a borrowed donkey, he ate the Last Supper in a borrowed upper room and he was buried in a borrowed tomb.

Perhaps this is His message to us that everything we have, we do not own and every moment we spend. We are merely living on borrowed time. In Him time no longer exists. He is the Author of it.

There is a story about a priest who asked the convict seated at the electric chair if he had a last request. "Yes, Father. Please stay with me and hold my hands," was the convict's reply.

Dr. Ravi Zacharias says: “Jesus did not come into this world in order to make bad people good. He came to make dead people live.” And His giving up His life for us and His rising from the dead as He conquered death is proof of His Purpose behind the sacrifice and the transaction. This is the basis of our hope.

Final thought: He will be with us no matter what.
