from a devotional by Max Lucado
At noon the whole country was covered with darkness, which lasted for three hours. — Matthew 27:45
Of course the sky is dark; people are killing the Light of the World . . .
The sky weeps. And a lamb bleats. Remember the time of the scream? “At about three o’clock Jesus cried out.” Three o’clock in the afternoon, the hour of the temple sacrifice. Less than a mile to the east, a finely clothed priest leads a lamb to the slaughter, unaware that his work is futile.
Heaven is not looking at the lamb of man but at “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.“
