“My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me” (2)

Those painful words of Jesus,
on God can He depend?
Sounds battered and forgotten
and very near His end.

We’ve no paradigm t’relate it;
all the evil ever made
and all of it on Jesus
and He perfectly obeyed.

But Jesus wasn’t any man,
He’s The Father’s only Son
who came to ransom and redeem
and our salvation won.

Our sin required a payment,
only Jesus fit the bill,
only He’s completely God and Man,
could execute the Father’s will.

So Jesus made the payment
on the cross at Calvary
and the Father seemed to turn away,
His pain too hard to see.

The Godhead’s very nature
is relationship and love,
Jesus naturally felt adverse
being the Quintessential Dove.

But though He felt forsaken
with the weight of sin’s despair
their relationship never faltered
the Father’s love was always there.

We trivialize the passion
of Jesus on the cross
when we try to understand it
from the perspective of the lost,

’cause perfect love’s the answer
and on earth it’s never seen,
unconditional love’s ❤️ hard to fathom
for sinners like you and me.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
