The Gospel, The Good News 17 of 41

God’s work on My Behalf

God loved me so much that He was willing to not only suffer the loss of His son, but to allow His son to suffer the loss of Him while He hung on the cross and died. God, in this moment on the cross for the first time in all of eternity past, present, and future, turned his back to His son and could not look on Him for His son took the sin of mankind on himself and paid for it with His shed blood. A holy God could not look on sin, and turned His back on His own son for My sake.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Mark 15:34

And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
