LEAD ME TO THE CROSS

Walk Towards Easter. 28.
‘ And at 3 in the afternoon, Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ” Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthan?” Which means, ” My God, My God why have you forsaken me?”
Q. How do you feel about the Passion of the Christ? What do you think is happening in this moment?
‘ My God, My God! Why have you forsaken me? Why do you remain so distant? Why do you ignore my cries for help?’ Psalm 22:1
This is heartbreaking, Jesus crying out to His Father, in His greatest hour of need, to be met with silence, an intense silence. For the first time in His earthly life He could not feel His Fathers presence. Surrounded by hostility and mockers, Jesus in His darkest moment was totally alone. After enduring horrific pain and humiliation Jesus had come to the end of himself. He was spent, the weight of the world’s sin resting upon His shoulders, the darkness closing in around Him. God allowed Him to feel the angst of our separation from God , to experience our human condition in its fullest. Jesus cried out as a man, desperate for help. This is why He knows our every sorrow, every burden, every shame. There is nothing in this life that we experience, no trauma or trial that He does not understand. He waded through death. 
The foot of the cross is where I choose to lay my life. He gave His all for me .

  1. What Jesus endured for us can never be comprehended, it will never be our personal experience. This is one “lesson” I will not ever have to learn…for which I am truly thankful.

    Thank you for this reminder of the immense love of our Lord!

    Your Sista’ in Christ!

  2. Eternal separation from God… is what Hell is and what Jesus faced as you say in those hours before being resurrected…. May we truly comprehend this Easter what that meant…Diane
