Summary: If Jesus cared for his momma, we ought to care for ours too.
Topic- Jesus cares for His momma
In these passage of scriptures, we see how Mary and the other women that were with her, watching her Son Jesus the Christ die such a very slow, cruel, painful, brutal, violent, bloody death on the cross. No doubt as Mary watched her Son Jesus die that slow, cruel, painful, brutal, violent, bloody death on the cross, she had flood of tears streaming down from her eyes. There is no doubt that Mary the mother of Jesus was in pain, in agony, in distress, was grief stricken, and was tormented as she watch her Son Jesus die that slow, cruel, painful brutal violent death on the cross. You see, Jesus had done no wrong nor had he committed any sin, but yet He was sentenced and condemned to die such a horrible death on the cross. In Acts 10:38, it tells us that “God had anointed Jesus Christ with the Holy Ghost and with power, and Jesus went about doing good things, and was healing those who were possessed with the devil because God was with Him.”
No, Jesus never did anything wrong, nor said anything wrong. He never committed any sin, but He was treated like a hardened criminal. He was sentenced and condemned to die by crucifixion on the cross because the religious leaders hated Jesus with a passion. They hated Jesus with a passion because they saw Jesus as threat to their tradition, to their power structure, to their popularity, to their livelihood , and to their religion. So to get rid of Jesus, the religious leaders planned and plotted to kill Jesus. And as you can see in these passage of scriptures, they succeed in getting Jesus killed by crucifixion on the cross. But thanks be to God that Jesus did die on the cross because it through the death of the cross that our sins can be forgiven and we can receive eternal life if we receive and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
And while the religious leaders were gloating in the death of Jesus Christ, whom they saw as a trouble maker, Mary stood there with tears in her eyes, looking at her innocent Son, the one she use to take care of when he was a baby, the one she use to take care of when he was a little boy growing up, the one who grew up to be a fine young man, and now at the of 33 years of age, he has been condemned to die such a slow, cruel, painful, brutal, violent, death on the cross.
But yet while, Mary was in agony, in pain, and in distress about her Son Jesus dying on the rugged cross on Calvary’s hill, Jesus makes provision for her to be taking care of. Now notice this, while Jesus was suffering in agonizing pain, He was thinking about His momma. Now that is a lesson to be learned right here. The lesson is that no matter how much pain you may be in, Jesus is thinking about you. And the reason why He is thinking about you is because He loves and cares for you and He wants to bless you if you just trust in Him.
Not only was He was thinking about his momma, but Jesus was thinking about his beloved disciple John. He too was in agony, in pain, and in distress while he watched Jesus die that slow cruel, painful, brutal, violent death on the cross. John had left a well-paying fishing job to follow Jesus for 3 years. He heard Jesus teach many great things, seen him performed many great miracles, and now He is looking at the one who seems so invincible nailed to a rugged cross to die such a slow, cruel painful, brutal, violent death on the cross.
