Because of sin
The Father and the Son were torn apart as it were--
Prov.8:22*"The Lord possessed Me at the beginning-
When He prepared the heavens I was there-
When He marked out the foundations of the earth then I was beside Him
as a master craftsman;
I was daily His delight-rejoicing always before Him!"
What a beautiful relationship!
Because of our sin
For God SO LOVED the world that
HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON
that whoso ever believes in Him
shalt NOT perish-
but HAVE everlasting life!
The Father blessed Jesus at His baptism-
"This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased" and yet--
Rom 8:32-He spared not His OWN Son!"
What glorious Love!
...for 33 years they were separated, only able to communicate through prayer.
in the garden of Gethsemane we see Jesus agonizing in prayer-
He desperately needed His Father!
"O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself,
with the glory which I had with You before the world was."
Then--the next day, as Jesus was dying on that awful tree-
Heavens' light was withdrawn*Luke 23:44
There was darkness till the ninth hour
The temple veil was rent in two!
There was an earthquake-
Dear Jesus-at His last gasping breath-
"FATHER into Your hands I commend My spirit"
He was now in the Father's care
we find over 2 dozen times that the Father raised His SON to life again
Jesus had completely surrendered His life to His Father
FOR YOU*FOR ME
