2 Samuel 24:1-25; Jeremiah 8:1-22; Ephesians 2:11-22

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Psalm 22:1

Under sin’s awful burden, the only begotten Son cried these
words to His Father. Divine silence followed but in its dying echo
was a promise to all the Saviour’s blood bought children—“I will
never leave thee, nor forsake thee” (Heb 13:5). To affirm His satisfaction
in His begotten Son’s travail, God sees us through only one
perspective—in Christ His Son. Such a view yields no reason to
leave or forsake. Not for a moment, not for eternity. —D. J. Reed

Sometimes ‘mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden’s bowers bloom,
By waters still, o’er troubled sea,
Still ‘tis His hand that leadeth me!
— J. H. Gilmore
