Holy Week

As we prepare to remember and celebrate all that Christ has done on our behalf, consider these prophetic words - written approximately 1,000 years before Jesus' crucifixion.

My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? Why are you so far from my deliverance and from my words of groaning?  Everyone who sees me mocks me; they sneer and shake their heads:  “He relies on the Lord ; let him save him; let the Lord rescue him, since he takes pleasure in him.”  I am poured out like water, and all my bones are disjointed; my heart is like wax, melting within me.  My strength is dried up like baked clay; my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth. You put me into the dust of death.  For dogs have surrounded me; a gang of evildoers has closed in on me; they pierced my hands and my feet.  I can count all my bones; people look and stare at me.  They divided my garments among themselves, and they cast lots for my clothing.  All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord . All the families of the nations will bow down before you,  for kingship belongs to the Lord ; he rules the nations.
Psalms 22:1‭, ‬7‭-‬8‭, ‬14‭-‬18‭, ‬27‭-‬28 CSB
