Today I'm thankful for our sermon yesterday morning. We've now reached the point where Jesus is dying on the cross in our study of Luke. Something that was brought out to me in this was how when Jesus spoke from the cross twice He quoted from the Psalms. That the same Psalms that we read and sing today are the ones that Jesus knew, loved, sang, and found comfort in too.
"And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (from Psalm 22).
"And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost."
I love how God's word was what was on His mind in such suffering, and the model that that is to us to have scripture hidden in our hearts as followers of Christ.
