His mouth became dry. He called out for a drink. He was mocked once again. The anger starts to rise in me, I ask how could they do this. But still I must focus on the one that was on the Cross. He calls to His Father with a loud cry. ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani- My God my God why have you left me. But still I must focus on the one who was on the Cross. At 3pm the final words came…”It is finished” . Jesus bowed His head. He gave up His spirit. But still I must focus on the one who was on the Cross. At this same moment the curtain of the temple tore from the top to the bottom. The whole earth began to shake. Rocks split and tombs opened. People exclaimed “Surely He was the Son of God”. Jesus had told His disciples, ‘”After 3 day I will rise” and that’s exactly what He did.. My focus is no longer on the one who is on the Cross,. He is no longer there. I now focus on the one who has Risen. He has risen for me and He has risen for you.
His Love is now my focus.
