Jesus cried in a loud voice, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” Matthew 27:46 Did you know why Jesus was abandoned on the cross? Because of our sin. The Father literally had to abandon His Son as He hung on the cross. In a very real sense, the Father turned His back on the Son He loved so much. For the punishment of our sins to be complete, the Son had to face and endure the rejection that we deserve for our sins. The sense of abandonment He went through must have been immeasurable, that must have been the worst moment for Him. Jesus paid for your sins so you wouldn’t have to. He took the wrath that you deserve so you could know forgiveness. How do you respond to this love, this great sacrifice? Have you really put your faith in Jesus Christ and what He did for you on the cross? Don’t put off till tomorrow, you never know what tomorrow holds. Today is the day of salvation.
