The Last Words of Jesus to His Disciples:
Enduring Lessons on Faith, Hope, and Love
What would you do if you had less than twenty-four hours to live? Knowing He would die in a few hours, Jesus Christ spent His last few moments sharing powerful, enduring lessons of faith, hope, and love such as, Let Not Your Hearts Be Troubled; I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; I Give You a New Commandment—Love, just as I Love You, that yet transform people around the world today.
It is unfathomable how someone would spend His last moments sharing His heart as passionately and unselfishly as our Lord did. The Last Words of Jesus explores enduring lessons Jesus taught that continue to transform and strengthen human hearts and minds even in today’s fast-paced, hectic world.

Five Things Every Christian Must Know
Sometimes life’s hectic pace can distract us from realizing our unique, God-given design. Here, we often settle for a false identity that is woefully inadequate in providing true fulfillment. As God defines us in His Word, we have been designed—before we were born—with five essential characteristics that we can live out over the course of our lifetime to reach our full potential in Christ.
Five Things Every Christian Must Know shows how through an eternal encounter with Jesus Christ, we can enjoy a healthy and fulfilling life filled with His purpose, grace, and peace.
Through the Eyes of Jesus
Sometimes forgiving others who may have wronged us or forgiving ourselves for our past blunders can be very difficult. Our worst enemies―fear, pride, and selfishness―can often rob us from experiencing healthy, fulfilling interpersonal relationships through our intentional unforgiveness.
Radical Forgiveness Through the Eyes of Jesus shows how we can experience and express God’s love, grace, and mercy in ways that transform, as we forgive others (and ourselves) as God has forgiven us.
