“My God, My God, Why have you forsaken me?”
How can it be that Jesus would have felt forsaken as he hang on the cross? In this moment, Jesus was all human. He had to be for the perfect sacrifice of sin to work and for God to be a just God. Make no mistake about it though, it offers an incredible model for us as Jesus demonstrated that is OKAY to bring your hard questions to God. In fact, we learn in several areas of scripture, especially I Peter 5:6 where Peter writes, “Humble yourselves therefore, under God’s might hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your cares on him because he cares for you.” This teaches us that even when we are in our darkest hour, to Aim Your Hard Questions at God, Not Man.
