our Saviour dies
how could our Saviour die? putting these two words (Saviour and die) together makes His promise for a Resurrection seem almost fake. wasn’t Jesus the Son of God? how could God let anything like this happen to someone so precious to Him?
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
Jesus’ death on the Cross was necessary. it was needed in order to save us and allow us to hope in eternal life. to do this, Jesus had to overcome death, pain and suffering to the full. His death is also a reminder of the immense love of the Son and the Father.
as we move through this day of mourning, let us be with Jesus at His Cross, to suffer with Him. just as Mother Mary did on his way to Calvary, she did it out of love for Him and not of love for ourselves.
let us to continue to hope in the Resurrection of our Lord, for sin no longer has a hold on us!
