It is said, “A picture is worth a thousand words!” This picture speaks volumes, “The Son of God crucified for us.” Do you hear the WORD? God GAVE His Son for you. The world of humanity has only offended its creator. The penalty of this offense is death and eternal damnation. Nevertheless, God desires you and gives His most precious love for you His Son. His Son becomes dammed for you and me. His Son dies in your place to save you. His Son takes your sin into Himself. His Son is separated from the love of the Father on the cross for you. Hear His cry of agony for you.
“And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, ‘ My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?’ Matthew 27:46 NKJV
Jesus experiences the agony of the death of separation from God, so we won’t! Oh, may the Holy Spirit enable us to hear those horrific words of the loud cry of the Son of God.
“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
Oh, may the Holy Spirit enable us (for a moment) to feel the terror of Jesus’ separation from the love of God.
Oh, may the Holy Spirit witness to you the horror of the death of Jesus, because all the brutality of it really belongs to all of us.
Friends, this is not a fable, cunningly devised. It is the truth. The God-awful truth about you and I is, Jesus Christ was given to save us!
“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 NKJV
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 NKJV
“For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6 NKJV
“For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living.” Romans 14:9 NKJV
Oh, may the Holy Spirit open your heart, mind and intelligence to believe this fact. You have sinned, and Christ died for your transgression. He did this for me too! He wants to do it for you, no matter who you are or what you have done. This message is for all the peoples of the world, individually.
Please, don’t delay, recognize Jesus as your Savior today!
