How am I, a mere mortal, to understand “The Passion on Good Friday!” The mystical ways and inner workings of the thoughts and the mind of God is unfathomable for me. I have such a hard time trying to understand why Jesus had to die on the cross for the sins of the world. Wasn’t there another way? The Crucifixion of Jesus was such a derogation
for a godly, sinless and righteous man of God. But what difference does my grief bear on the history that has already taken place? Commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus by expressing my thoughts of gratitude on this day for a life after death because of His sacrifice!
I was reading “The continuation of the history of the passion.” and this part (Mark 15:34) “And at the ninth hour, Jesuscried out with a loud voice, saying: Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabacthani? Which is, being interpreted: My God, My God, Why hast thou forsaken me?” Specifically these words: “My God, My God, Why hast thou forsaken me?” and I found an answer that I want to share with all of you today from Bible Questions Answered.
The question from Matthew 27:46: Why did Jesus say, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” and to hear the answer in audio click here.
I thought that the article explained the question that was on my mind today very well, because I had wondered why Jesus had said that at the moment of His death. These are my previous posts on Good Friday 2007 and in 2008 Good Friday! And I also like this Saint Gregory’s Easter Prayer, but I find today a very humbling experience. To think:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
This is what I said in Prayer for Trust in Jesus,
“Jesus gave up His life for our sins; it is the least we can do is trust in Him!”
I could go on and on with trying to convey my thoughts and feelings today. Never really feeling like I’ve accomplished telling you exactly what this day makes me feel like. In conclusion:
Be Blessed with Love, Hope, Joy, Peace and Happiness to you and yours on this Good Friday!
Thanks for Listening,
