WHAT JESUS FELT ON THE CROSS

Some years ago “The King’s Business” told of a Christian fisherman who lay in his boat one night when he heard a loud splash not far away.

Knowing that the owner of another craft nearby was a heavy drinker, he hurriedly jumped into the cold water and with a great effort succeeded in pulling the half-drowned man out of the bay.

He carried him to his berth and applied first aid until the alcoholic regained consciousness. Having done everything to make him comfortable, he swam back to his own boat. The next morning he returned to inquire how he felt.

“That’s none of your business,” said the man defensively. The fisherman reminded him that he had risked his life to save him, but instead of showing gratitude, the man only cursed him.

As the Christian rowed away, tears filled his eyes. Looking up to Heaven, he said, “When I think of how men have treated You, dear Lord, I’m filled with sorrow. Now I can begin to understand how YOU must feel.

This book will help you in life no matter your profession, don’t forget that readers are leaders

My message for you today is…develop the habit of thanking God each morning and throughout the day. If you’re grateful you can’t be fearful.

When you said in Luke 23:34, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” “You felt we will come to our senses” that Jesus, who come to Earth and continues to exist in Heaven, is fully man and fully God. He fully understands the shortsightedness of the human condition.

When you said in Luke 23:43, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” He felt that we should understand that Jesus promised this criminal that he too would be in Paradise with Him, just as He offers the same promise today. It is up to us to come

When Jesus said in Mark 15:34; Matthew 27:46, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”Jesus uttered these words during his last hours: “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me? He felt that we should understand that Jesus had taken the sin upon himself and at the moment the Father could not be with him. This moment is filled with mystery as it is hard to fully understand how God’s perfect son Jesus was separated from God for some time on the cross so he could accept God’s wrath for humanity’s sin. Habakkuk 1:13 says “Thine eyes are too pure to approve evil, and Thou canst not look on wickedness with favor.” God had to be separate from Jesus because He could not look upon sin, especially when it was being cast upon his very own Son. Jesus cries out in grief during this excruciating time.

When Jesus said in John 19:26-27, “Woman, here is your son… Here is your mother.”expresses the Lord’s care and concern for His mother: “When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, ‘Woman, here is your son,’ and to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’ From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.” He felt that we should understand that the symbolic meaning can be drawn from Jesus’s words “Woman, behold your son.” Establishing the family of God was at the heart of Christ’s mission and ministry. Through relationship with Jesus Christ, believers become members of a new family (John 1:12). As the Lord completed His earthly ministry, His words to Mary, “Woman, behold your son,” and to John, “Here is your mother,” were profoundly illustrative of God’s new family being born at the foot of the cross.

When Jesus said in Luke 23:46, “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” You felt that we should understand that Jesus entirely surrenders his body and soul to his Father. This what we are called to do as Christians: give ourselves totally over to God.

When Jesus said in John 19:28, “I am thirsty.” You felt that we should understand that Jesus experienced real unimaginable physical suffering. His diety did not negate his humanity. He fully experienced pain, hunger, and thirst. He expressed that pain in his last words on the cross, he felt thirst. While it is heartbreaking to contemplate what Jesus would have felt during his last day on earth it can be comforting to remember that God empathizes with our physical suffering. “He felt that we should understand that He is thrust for righteous people.

When Jesus said in John 19:30, “It is finished.” The word Jesus uses here is “Tetelestai” which means “it is finished” or “completed.” This word was also written on business receipts in the New Testament to show that a bill has been paid in full. Jesus is indicating that his work, his fulfillment of the scripture, and his life is the ultimate payment for our sin. He has completed his work on earth and has fully offered himself at the ultimate sacrifice in our place for our sins. He felt that we should understand that the accusations of the devil is a lie! That the power of the devil is real but our victory in Christ Jesus is realer

Finally, Jesus felt that we should understand that He did all this to brings us to the Table, where our access to the presence of God and our confidence in His love for us are cemented and In addition, Surely, there’s no substitute to having God’s word in our heart and mind. it will solidify our faith to remain immovable no matter how the wind blows, instead it will be a motivation that will help you to fly.
