Throughout His ministry Jesus had tried to teach his followers that the way of SELF EMPTYING LOVE. They had become servants, slaves to one another and forget about GREATNESS AS THE WORLD UNDERSTANDS IT. The disciples, repeatedly failed to understand Him, and eventually left Him alone. So then the scene was abandoned to this FOREIGN PAGAN, outsider of faith, to tell us, the meaning of the ” cross of Calvary “. Through His faithfulness to the Kingdom ( Father’s rules ); Jesus finally tears away the veil ( the barrier who blinded our perception ) that separates God the Father and We: The suffering humanity.
By His prayer of abandonment to the will of the Father, Jesus has shown us that H e is far from abandoning us. God has identified Himself totally with our struggle to be save.
Suffering however, is part and parcel of being human and, while we must readily acknowledge this fact. It is also true that we usually do all in our power to avoid it in vain. We are not asked to believe that suffering is good in itself. But to see that good always can come of it – Romans 8: 28 ” We are assured and know that God being a partner in their labor, all things work together and are fitting into a plan for the good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose. ” –
