“Jesus cried out…, My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?” Mark 15:34. The aloneness experienced by the Lord Jesus as He hung on the cross was a terrible isolation. In the awfulness of those hours, Jesus endured a suffering worse than even the agonizing physical pain of crucifixion: He was forsaken by the Father. When Christ took our sins upon Himself to pay the death penalty for us, God turned away from His beloved Son. Whenever we think of Calvary, we should remember the great sacrifice Jesus made there. Let’s praise Him for what He endured. His great love made it possible for us to be restored to God. Christ became a curse for us to remove a curse from us.
