Thought for The Day – Thursday 10th June

About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).

Matthew 27: 46

One of the great mysteries of faith is the trinity. Father, Son and Spirit existing together as one being yet distinct. Trying to find human words to describe this has never been easy. This verse though offers a glimpse into one of the consequences Jesus experienced that directly impacted the trinity. This appears to be the first time when Father, Son and Spirit were separated. Can you imagine the loneliness Jesus experienced as for the first time ever he was alone? When we think of everything Jesus suffered we often think the physical crucifixion was worst yet this was far worse.

Prayer: Father, what you and Jesus and the Spirit went through for me astonishes me the more I think about it. That you would do that for me speaks so much of your loving nature. Thank you.

Action: Reach out today to someone who seems to be alone.
