JESUS MAKES PROVISION

June 10, 2022

John 19:26 - 27 When Jesus saw His mother there, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.

A. THE RELATIONSHIP CHANGES
Here we see how Jesus speaks to His mother. We see how He calls her ‘WOMAN’ not mother. In that moment the relationship changed. He was now ‘THE SON OF GOD – TAKING AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD’. The son of man could never do that, it had to be the Son of God! In that moment He became the Saviour of the world! In the same way, our relationship with God needs to change and He (Jesus) needs to become more than historical knowledge about a man and He needs to become our Saviour!

B. JESUS MAKES PROVISION
Jesus wanted to make sure that Mary was cared for. It is a moment of honouring and provision. Even when faced with tremendous pain and suffering this aspect was important to Him. In addition His disciple John was also at the cross. He was the disciple whom Jesus loved. In Jesus’ wisdom, He must have realized that the one He loved would take care of His mother. In the same way God wants you and I to know that He will make a way for us, even in the toughest of situations. God will be faithful to meet our needs.

4. JESUS CRIES OUT

Matthew 27:45 - 46
 From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land. 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?”

A. GOD TURNS HIS BACK ON HIS SON JESUS
Jesus did not say: ‘My God, it feels like you have forsaken me!’ Jesus knew what was happening. God was placing the sin of all mankind on His Son and in that moment God, who could tolerate sin, turned away. To be ‘forsaken’ is undesirable state. To be ‘forsaken’ by God is the ultimate loss. Jesus felt and carried the weight of this loss. Now Jesus changes His terminology and He does not refer to God as His Father, but now God is God. He knew that God could not tolerate sin and in that moment when He carried man’s sin, the reality of God as GOD was a reality. Today God cannot look or tolerate our sin and we need to understand that sin separates us from God. Therefore we need to deal with sin in our own lives. We need to repent and ask God to forgive us, realizing that He is God, but in the process He can become Our Father!
