Bible Reading: Matthew 27.
Insight: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mat 27:46b)
Insight one: Jesus is God, why was He crucified? And when He was crucified, He cried out loudly, “My God! My God! Why have you forsaken me?” Because at that moment, the sin of the entire world rested on His body and mind. Jesus has no sin, but He Himself has borne all sins for us, causing the separation between Him and God the Father. For our sins, Jesus endured the pain of loneliness, ignoring, and abandonment, all for the purpose of saving the world, including you and me.
Meditate two: Have you ever cried out loudly “Why”? The Lord Jesus has experienced that, so He understands you. At those moments, you need to come to Abba Father Who knows you and understands the whole event, and pour out everything to Him. He will definitely open a way for you, and He will help you, lead you, and wipe away every tear from you. To find help, you must find the right helper.
Prayer: Abba Father, praise the great love that You have manifested in Christ. There are many things in this world that I do not understand, but I trust Your promise: “whoever comes to me I will never drive away” (Joh 6:37). No matter what will happen, please calm down my heart, and let me not ask “Lord, why?” but ask “Lord, what do you want me to learn”? I want to surrender to You completely. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
