His son died?
Nothing Matthew 27:46
Cruel? Callous? Uncaring? NO! It was a loving Father allowing his only son to die so that all people could become his adopted children. It was allowing Jesus to take the guilt of all the sins of all people of all time so those people could live in victory on a temporary earth and surrounded with glory in an eternal heaven.
Sins, Adam’s and mine, were a barrier between God and I. Only His “forsaking” of Jesus completed the plan to remove such barriers. All the combined past and future blessings to me from God can never equal the value of turning away from Jesus and allowing Him to die. Thank you. Thank you, Father.
