13 Apr Matthew 27:45-50
45 Now from the sixth hour darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour. 46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” 47 And some of those who were standing there, when they heard it, began saying, “This man is calling for Elijah.” 48 Immediately one of them ran, and taking a sponge, he filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink. 49 But the rest of them said, “Let us see whether Elijah will come to save Him.” 50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
Jesus was crucified from nine until noon. He cried out, “My God, why have You forsaken Me?” The crowd thought He was calling for Elijah, but Psalm 22 clarifies. Jesus cried out again to God, “It is finished. Into Your hands I commit My spirit!” Through His death on the cross, we can communicate directly with Jesus. Get to know Jesus and invest in a relationship with Him.
