He Yielded Up His Spirit

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Matthew 27 today.
After watching Jesus go through His trials, watching the Romans scourge Him, and seeing the Jews mock Him, we see Jesus finally die. Matthew wrote, “And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit” (Matthew 27:50).
Amazing! Jesus died when He was ready to die. He yielded up His spirit because He was in control the whole time, although to everyone looking on, it did not appear to be that way. Sometimes we look at our lives and believe that God is not in control, but He is.
