“Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" - Matthew 27:45-46
Darkness. Complete darkness for 3 hours in the middle of the day. Not an eclipse. Not a thick layer of clouds. Supernatural darkness. During those three hours of darkness, all the wrath deserved for my sin was put onto Jesus completely separating him from the Father. Jesus, on the cross, dead.
Oh that I would remember Good Friday beyond one night a year. Today is too important. His work on the cross too great. Life is about much more than feeding little faces and changing poopy diapers. Souls, precious souls needing to know what their savior did for them that day on the cross. #SundaysComing - 1 hour ago
