The Loneliness Epidemic
Day 7- Sunday Selah
Ruth P McDonald

“Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.’ When he had said this, he breathed his last.” (Luke 23:46, NIV)

At the peak of Jesus’ loneliness, He cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46). During those hours on the cross, when He became sin for us and paid the price for our sin, Jesus felt extremely alone. But just before He took His last breath, He cried out to His Father, committing His spirit into His hands. Yet He still had the grave to conquer. We cannot understand the happenings in those three days, but we do know that Jesus longed for the presence of the Father. After His resurrection, when He ascended to heaven, it would have brought Him such joy to be reunited physically with His Father.

As we worship Him today, let us enjoy the relationship He’s invited us into; it’s a tremendous privilege. If we are lonely, He longs to fill us and restore our joy. We know we are safe in His presence with whatever we might confess and bring to Him. Sometimes the sorrows of life can cause distance with our Savior, but may we be reminded that He longs to draw near to our hurting hearts and fill us completely with Himself so that we may worship Him with our whole hearts. What a joy it is to know He loves us this much.
