Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani?

God, God why have you forsaken me? That is the question Jesus himself uttered upon the cross the day he died. He felt completely and utterly alone. We did that.

Crucifixion is not only a death meant to be as painful as possible but also the utmost humiliation. A person crucified was the lowest of the low, criminal, and their bodies hanging were a warning to those who saw them. He suffered that.

A sacrifice was needed and he accepted that responsibility.

He died so that we will live.

Good Friday isn't good because it's fun or easy.
Good Friday is good because without it we are lost.
