Gossip: facing the facts

Tuesday, December 2, 2014
    About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?”—which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
    —Matthew 27:46 (NIV)
    No book in the whole world has faced the fact of sorrow, and the mystery of pain so honestly, and with such steady eyes as the New Testament. It is not for nothing that the Christian symbol is—a Cross; and a most wonderful fact that it was a voice from the agony of crucifixion that has made masses of men entirely sure that God is Love.
    ... A. J. Gossip (1873-1954), Experience Worketh Hope, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1945, p. 98 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 22:1; Isa. 53:3-8; Matt. 27:46; John 15:13; Rom. 8:18,22; 2 Cor. 4:17; 1 Pet. 1:6; 2:21,24; 4:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your suffering gives witness to the truth.
