The Lie That God Has Personally Never Suffered

Selected highlights from this sermon.

Can God suffer? Yes: look at the cross.

While Jesus, fully man and fully God, was hanging on the cross, bearing our sins, God the Father withdrew, causing Jesus to cry out “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me!”

God, in the form of the Son, was suffering. His shoulders bore all the sins of the world - past, present and future.

And all of the punishment and judgment we deserved—not Him—was paid for with His blood.

Yes. God can suffer.
