The Suffering Of Our Father At The Crucifixion

Greetings!

We Christians should never overlook the fact that God the Father had to have suffered beyond comprehension while watching what His Son was going through on the day of that crucifixion.

Any loving human being, such as Mary the mother of Jesus, would have their heart completely torn asunder, beyond description, observing such pain and agony, especially for One so innocent.

The more we are capable of loving the more we are capable of suffering. God is Love (1 John 4:8) and He is certainly capable of experiencing “sorrow”, “sadness” and “grief” as indicated by Ephesians 4:30. The three sentiments listed here are how the Greek word “lupeo” is defined.

Since God’s Love is boundless, His suffering on that day must have been boundless.

When we remember the glorious sacrifice of our Lord we should along with it always remember the glorious sacrifice of the Father, as He was so willing to suffer as He did by allowing His Son to suffer for our sakes….John 3:16.

Take care.
