In the midst of suffering we can wonder, does Jesus really have the power to help me, or my child?
Back in 1982 on Good Friday, Pastor John meditated on John 19:26-27: So Jesus, seeing his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing there, said to his mother, “Woman, behold your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her into his family.
The word of Jesus to his mother from the cross is a great encouragement to our faith. For if he could provide for his own in the moment of his weakness and humiliation, how much more can he meet all our needs today from the right hand of God, full of power and wealth and glory. John Piper, The Third Word from the Cross, April 9, 1982
