Jesus on the cross.A moment in time where he became the lamb to be sacrificed.Pain beyond comprehension.Misery unlike any other.Yet here in the midst of it all, we find Jesus still looking out for others.Not focused on himself and his needs.The cross reveals the love of God in the clearest picture possible.
He loved his mother, and "the disciple" (some say it was John.
We need to understand that these who loved Jesus and had come to the cross, did so with great fear and personal risk. Jesus was a revolutionary in the eyes of Rome. He was a heretic in the eyes of the religious ruling council there in Jerusalem. Any supporter of Jesus who stood at the cross ran the risk of ridicule and arrest. It didn't matter. The women stood there. Why? They were there because they loved him. There is no other explanation. They simply loved him and did not want to desert him in his greatest hour of need. He had done so much for them that they were willing to stand by him no matter the cost.
We should realized that he is also moved by the hurt and pain we experience. Jesus is not some entity sitting off in the universe somewhere, gazing on earth with a bored expression. He is up close and personal and takes what affects us personal.
Wow! Think on these things.......
He is risen!
