Matthew 27:46, And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
We find the answer to this question in Psalm 22. It opens with these words, “My God, my god, why hast thou forsaken me? Why are you so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?”
Then we read the answer in verse 3! “But thou art holy…” You see, when my sin and your sin was placed on Jesus, God had to withdraw! When God withdrew, He turned His back on His Son. He did this so that sinners like you and I could go to be with the Lord in heaven one day! Let’s praise Him, for He is worthy to be praised!
