Has God Forsaken Me?
By Brian Price 8/30/2013

"And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias." - Mark 15:34-35

Here we read about Jesus crying a quote from the cross which comes from Psalms chapter 22. We see here how he must have felt while being on the cross in total shame and agony. He bore a terrible, humiliating death. Instead of a crown of gold, he wore a crown of thorns. Instead of an army of ten thousands, a crowd of blood thirsty sinners cast scorn and hate into his teeth. Instead of an ivory throne overlaid with gold, he hung from a wooden cross. There are times in our lives when we suffer so bad that we wonder, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Sometimes we can feel like God is not there. Sadly many teach that God had turned his back on his Son that day. But that is not so. Jesus said, "Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me," (John 16:32). His Father was there with him on the cross. It may have seemed like God had forsaken him, but God was there suffering with him.
