Why Jesus – Day 14
When Jesus was at the Garden of Gethsemane, He asked God to take this cup from Him. But then He said whatever your will is, I will do it.
He was about to take the world’s sin and yes, it would be painful. Jesus took sin and was separated from God. On the cross, Jesus allowed Himself to be forsaken, so that you and I would never be forsaken, if we accept Jesus as our Savior and LORD.
Jesus bore the cross, took the sins of the world and allowed Himself to be forsaken by God, so we could now have His perfection and have a relationship with God.
We will never be forsaken if we trust in Jesus Christ.
“About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?’ (which means ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’).” Matthew 27:46 NIV
