Some of Jesus' last words from the cross are, "My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?"
I've always been confused by this...I thought God promised to never leave us or forsake us!?!? So,what was Jesus talking about? What did He mean? And, what does this mean for us today? (MUCH more than we may even realize!)
The 3rd in our Lenten series, "On the Cross..." learning about the words Jesus spoke from the cross.
Join us for our Seeds of Faith family Sunday AM gathering. (This is the audio-only message portion of our Sunday AM Zoom service)

The 2nd in our Lenten series, "On the Cross..." learning about the words Jesus spoke from the cross.
It is fitting that the final conversation Jesus has before His death is with a sinner rethinking his life in response to the character and mercy of Jesus. When one of the criminals hanging on a cross next to Jesus says, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." Jesus' reply is very direct and overflowing with mercy (compassion + forgiveness), "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise."
Listen in as we learn about one of Jesus' overwhelming mercy as he assures the salvation of even the "worst of the worst" of society...

For our Lent series we are learning about the words Jesus spoke from the cross.
The Roman speaker/writer Cicero wrote, "Crucifixion is the most cruel and horrifying punishment." As Jesus was experiencing potentially the most painful, shameful, humiliating punishment one could ever experience (for crimes He did not commit!), some of His first words were, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."
Are you kidding me!?!? Who but Jesus would ever show that kind of love and mercy?
So...who is "them"? Listen in as we study one of the most powerful images in all the Bible (If not of all time).
