The Cross: MAT 27:46

Matthew 27:46  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 3
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice.
Jesus, the Creator of the universe, had been hanging on the cross for about six hours, the last three in total darkness. No one knows or will know the suffering of those three hours - only God. He punished His own Son for our sins during that time. Is it any wonder that Jesus cried out? He cried in a loud voice - He was still in control of His life. What was the cry? Perhaps the most awful cry ever to leave the lips of a man: “My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?” There was no answer. We know it though - because of our sin. What a cost! Let’s thank Him again today.
