Luke 23:44-46

Luk 23:44 It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour,
Luk 23:45 while the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.
Luk 23:46 Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last.

three hours of darkness

The light had come into the world, but the inhabitants of this world loved darkness, rather than light. So, the final hours of our Lord’s life were spent in darkness. A curtain was torn in two, and no one noticed its significance. The Lord of light was making a new way into his Father’s presence. Until his resurrection, he entrusted his dead spirit into the hands of the Father. Three hours of darkness for three days of death.

LORD, thank you for dying for us, rescuing us from darkness and death.
