Morning Line: He did it for You!
“…My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?” Matthew 27:46 NKJV
Imagine having to stand on a stage and watch every sin you’ve ever committed replayed for the entire world to see – secret addictions, selfish motives, angry outbursts, critical attitudes, and a jealous heart.
How do you think you’d feel?
Well, Jesus experienced much worse. The Bible says: ‘He…bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness by whose stripes you were healed (1Peter 2:24 NKJV).
It’s bad enough to die for sins you didn’t commit, but imagine being forsaken by God! Does that mean the Psalmist was wrong when he wrote: ‘…I have never seen the righteous forsaken…’ (Psalms 37:25 NIV)?
No, because at that moment Jesus was anything but righteous. When you look at Him hanging there you will see the gossiper, the liar, the cheater, the alcoholic, the porn addict, the child abuser, the murderer. Does it bother you to see His name linked with theirs? Well, Jesus did even more. He put Himself in their place and yours. In a move that broke God’s heart and gave us the gift of eternal life, He poured out His righteous judgment on His only Son. So when Jesus cried from the cross, ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?’ He said it so that you would never have to. What wondrous love.
Receive Him as Savior and take daily time to know the God the Father, Son the Redeemer, Holy Spirit your teacher/ guide, you will be more than glad you did.
