Matthew 27

Today we are reading Matthew 27. In this chapter we read about the crucifixion and death of Jesus. “Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.” And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink. But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.” And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭27:45-51‬ ‭ESV‬‬ This is the moment that God kept His promise. The Savior had come and sacrificed Himself. The sins of the world were paid for. Imagine if you were watching the crucifixion…it would be next to impossible to see that event as good. From our perspective today we see it as a great day when our sins were paid for and we were reconciled with God. It is crucial in our faith to remember Jesus’ death and resurrection. How can we make sure we never forget? May God bless you to live every day with gratitude in your hearts to Jesus. Pastor Tim
