Forsaken for us

Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for bearing the full weight of our sin. You were utterly sinless and yet were crushed for our iniquities. Lord thank you for suffering the dreadful anguish and loss as our sin tore you from that beautiful fellowship with the Father. You were utterly forsaken, absorbing the awful disconnection with God that we had earned. Lord thank you for carrying us with you through this judgement; thank you that we died with you so that we can stand truly acquitted and blameless. Thank you that you lift us up in newness of life, that we are no longer bound to the dreadful master of sin, but instead serve you our loving king and saviour. Lord, we trust you and long to see you face to face, may we be transformed into your image more and more until that day.

Amen
