Mission Execution: The Death of Jesus (Mark 15:33-41)Pastor Travis Cardwell, April 1, 2012
Part of the Mission Impossible? (Mark) series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Friends, are you amazed by the cross of Christ? Do you see the unspeakable love that is demonstrated at Golgotha? God the Father, demonstrated his love for us by sending his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. And this did not come cheap. Our redemption and atonement came by the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. Friends, if you question what God has done for you lately, linger on the reality of the cross. There is nothing else in this world that we will ever need apart from what we have in Jesus Christ.

33And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 35And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias. 36And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down. 37And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. 38And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. 39And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God. 40There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; 41(Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.
