Exodus 28:15-43; Psalms 74:1-75:10; Acts 16:16-40
My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? Psalm 22:1
Here we stand on holy ground. The Lord Jesus was completing the work that the Father had given Him to do on the Cross. The Creator, dies for the creature. The Son dies for sinners. The King dies to regain the Kingdom. The Holy dies for the unholy. The Immortal dies for the mortal. The Light of the world is shrouded in darkness, that we might be saved from the “blackness of darkness forever” (Jude 13). But at what a cost to Himself. The eternal Son of God, the Son of His Love, forsaken by His God. —W. H. Burnett
‘Tis mystery all, the immortal dies, who can explore His strange design?
In vain the firstborn seraph tries, to sound the depths of love divine. —C. Wesley
