The only thing that terrified Jesus was being out of fellowship with His Father.
“My God, My God, why have you abandoned Me?” He cried from the cross. (Mark 15:34 NLT)
We’ve grown accustomed to being out of touch with God; the things that terrify us are the thought of losing our job, the price of gas, where’s the world headed….
Jesus, on the other hand, had faith concerning that which frightens us, yet was terrorized by that which we barely notice, distance from God.
What if the greatest thing we feared was being distanced from God?
How would our lives then look?
What changes would we make?
