Jesus cried, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46
Can any of you who are parents imagine abandoning your child to be beaten, mocked, scorned, and killed by your enemies – because their crimes needed to be punished? But that’s what the Father did, for you and me. Sin deserves punishment. Jesus took all of that on Himself.
Jesus paid for your sins so you wouldn’t have to. He took the wrath that you deserve so you could know forgiveness and access into the Kingdom of God. He was forsaken so you could be accepted.
How do you respond to this love, this great sacrifice?
Have you really put your faith in Jesus Christ and what He did for you on the cross?
