Rebecca Droeger

For a second grader, my daughter Nicole reads at far greater a level than I used to at her age.  For the first time this week, I let her read the article I wrote for last Saturday, Haughty.

She was so excited that her name was mentioned, and she thought it was fantastic how I was able to tie something in our lives to the Bible.

Nicole was practically giddy with the ideas that were coming out of her head for my next article.  She said I should write about Jesus’ life for the next article.  I asked her “which part?”

“From when Mary had Him as a baby until He rose from the dead,” she answered.

“Baby, that’s the entire four Gospels; do you think we might narrow it down a bit?”

Her eyes gleamed in amazement.  She said “well, how about His resurrection then?  Talk about from when Jesus was in the Garden praying to the time He was resurrected.”

“Well, I had better make sure none of the other Omega Letter writers talk about that before I do.”

She said “well, o.k. then.  How about you write about Mary and Martha and how Mary washed Jesus’ feet if someone else talks about the resurrection.”

“No problem, Sweetie.”

How precious!  It’s moments like that where you can see the Holy Spirit move through your child.  You look at this magnificent being and wonder, “how could God stand watching His Son suffer on the cross?”

Yes, you know the end result:  Christ rises from the dead on the third day as God knew; but it still couldn’t have been easy.

God not only had to let His son suffer and die on the cross; but He had to leave him completely by Himself, starting in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Here Jesus had just celebrated a wonderful Passover meal with his disciples.  He felt loved and comforted by those closest to him and shared a glorious moment with them and his Father through the Holy Communion.  The Gospel of John even describes how John had nestled into Jesus’ bosom (John 13:23).  What could make a person feel more loved than that?

Then, the next moment, you see the disciples can’t even stay awake while Jesus prepares to be taken captive.  Jesus is all alone, praying to the Father.

 Jesus had to wake the disciples three times before he was captured.

At one point, Jesus felt so abandoned and had prayed so earnestly that God sends an angel to strengthen Jesus after Jesus first asks that the cup be taken from him (Luke 22:41-44); but then Jesus is so sorrowful and prays so intently about his impending duties that he sweats blood.

From the moment Jesus was captured to the moment He died, God left Him to be on His own.  Jesus had to face it alone because Jesus had to lay His life down out of His own free will; without His Father’s comfort.  If He had received His Father’s comfort, then it may have made the choice to die easier.  It would have appeared that Jesus was goaded into doing it rather than deciding to do it.

Imagine, leaving your child to face the sins of the world all on his own at the time he needs you the most.  If I had to think of sins of just one person, just leaving my daughter to face those on her own sickens me.

Thankfully, Jesus’ death was not where it all ended.  Our sins are dead and buried with his crucifixion; but our future lies with his resurrection.

So, other than the Easter Bunny visiting on Sunday, Nicole is looking forward to celebrating our King’s resurrection.  I asked her what was so important about the resurrection; to which her little mind replied “because that’s when Jesus conquered death.”

Yes, indeed, Nicole.  Not only His own death, but the rest of ours too!
