THE LORD OUR SAVIOR


“Jesus shouted, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Matt. 27:46

Jesus appears to question God at the time of his crucifixion. But He was not. Jesus was expressing the anguish He felt when He took on the sins of mankind and all the wrath of God against that which opposed Him. Jesus was cut off from God in that sacrificial moment. This was what Jesus dreaded as He prayed to God in the garden to take away the cup from Him. The cup was His death on the cross for all the sins of the world. The physical agony was beyond horrible, but even worse was the period of spiritual separation from His Father. Jesus suffered this double death so that we would never have to experience eternal separation from God. He is the sinner’s friend and in dying, He assured believers of eternal life.

God, our hearts are humbled when we think of the love that brought your son to Calvary. Forgive us of our sin this day and may we live in the light of your glory. Amen
