The 7 Last Words - Affection

Who was at the cross of Jesus?

  1. Mary, his mother - despite the anguish it brought her, she was there, "all in."
  2. Salome (Mary's sister) - despite Jesus' earlier rebuke to her she still followed him and did not turn away.
  3. Mary Magdalene - she never forgot what Jesus had done for her.
  4. John - he was the only disciple to show up. Faithful and trustworthy.
  5. Jesus - did not focus on his own suffering but on caring for others, his mother in particular in this passage.

Are you "all in," remaining faithful when corrected, not forgetting what Jesus has done for you, faithful and focused on others rather than yourself?
