Jesus was Forsaken, but He has overcome the world for us to be washed from sin and be forgiven.
The Father’s great love, our only HOPE.
1. abandoned or deserted.
“a journey into forgotten and forsaken places”
At about three o’clock, Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
Our benediction at church yesterday included this verse- when it started to be read I said it in my head and best them to the end, I knew it and had read/heard it many many times before. But this stuck me anew, Jesus cries “why have you forsaken me?” Feeling of abandonment by God. I’m sure there is theological and language interpretations that would be more technically correct then this….
I prayed yesterday, thankful for God incarnate– Jesus gave up His divinity to become fully man so He could understand and relate to my humanity. So I could be in relationship with Him, knowing He understood me.
