Easter series 1/3: If Jesus writes a letter about suffering and betrayal
April 20, 2019/
Sometimes God speaks in the first person. That’s how personal He is in our relationship with Him. Perhaps, He is speaking to some of you who are reading this.
Dear child, I’ve suffered. I get it. I get you. I’ve been there—in the darkest pit, in the most traumatic pain. Rejected by those who loved me.
“I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax; it has melted away within me. My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust of death. Dogs have surrounded me; a band of evil men has encircled me, they have pierced my hands and my feet. I can count all my bones; people stare and gloat over me. They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.” Psalm 22:14–18 ESV
