Never Separated from God

Description

When we claim the Lamb as our own sacrifice for sin, we will never be separated from God, because Jesus was.

I and My Father are one” (John 10:30, NKJV).

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matt. 27:46, NIV) The words came from the cracked lips and the crushed heart of God’s Son as His tortured body and fevered mind were pushed to the outer limits of endurance. For the first time in eternity, the Father and Son were actually separated. They were separated by all of your sins and my sins, which came between Them.

Even when Jesus had been alone in a crowd, or alone on a mountainside, or alone on the lake He had never truly been alone!  His Father had always been with Him. He and His Father were so close they were One. To be separated was a spiritual death that was worse than a living nightmare. It was hell!

No one on this side of hell will ever know the loneliness Jesus endured on the Cross—in your place and mine. When we claim the Lamb as our own sacrifice for sin, we will never be separated from God, because Jesus was.

Just Give Me Jesus
