*I stumbled upon my writing from last year & it pierced my heart~
So today you get 2 Good Friday posts, as this is the second one*
WITHOUT JESUS is a day WITHOUT~
Total separation from
The same darkness that filled the sky on the day that is called
The day when
JESUS became separated from GOD on the cross.
The brutal cross where
HE hung for three hours~
"From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land" (Matthew 27:25)
Darkness filled the heart of HIS mother & HIS disciples.
A day WITHOUT JESUS Is a day WITHOUT!
What is your "WITHOUT" that causes you to be WITHOUT
But GOD allowed darkness to take over when HE allowed
HIS SON to suffer, as JESUS wore each nail that kept Him on the cross..
And then about three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice,
"Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?"
(which means 'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?')" (Matthew 27:46).
Have you ever cried out those same words in your "WITHOUT" moments~
"My GOD, my GOD, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish?
My GOD, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest." (Psalm 22:1-2)
Total Darkness & Total Separation from
"GOD made HIM who had no sin to be sin for us,
so that IN HIM we might become the righteousness of GOD" (2 Corinthians 5:12)~
ONCE & FOR ALL
so darkness would never take over us on a
Good day called
Good for us because
"GOD demonstrates HIS own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, CHRIST died for us" (Romans 5:8)
by nailing to the cross whatever is weighing you down
and by looking up to the
Who we can't live
A DAY WITHOUT JESUS is a day WITHOUT!
A MOMENT WITHOUT JESUS is a moment WITHOUT!
A SECOND WITHOUT JESUS is a second WITHOUT!
