Light for My Path Daily Devotion- Words from the Cross
When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home. (John 19:26-27 ESV)
Hymn ELH 337:1,4 Our Blessed Savior Seven Times Spoke
Our blessed Savior seven times spoke
When on the cross our sins He took
And died lest we should perish.
Let us His last and dying words
In our remembrance cherish.
To weeping Mary, standing by,
“Behold thy son,” now hear Him cry;
To John, “Behold thy mother.”
Provide, O Lord, for those we leave;
Let each befriend the other.
O God, in mercy Your Son cared for His mother, even as He died for her sins and mine. Teach me to care for others, living out my faith in the full knowledge that Jesus has saved me. In His name I pray. Amen.
