Forsaken

Standard

Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

Something that hit me on Sunday was the fact that because of this verse – because God forsook his Son, He will never forsake me.

I did a searh this morning on http://www.biblegateway.com/ for the word forsaken. It’s amazing the # of times we (or the children of Israel or the disciples, etc) forsook God. And how also, God in his wrath forsook them and let them be captured, killed, etc…

But after the cross… all it refers to is…
2 Corinthians 4:9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.
