The very heart of the Christian message is that the happy God
so loved our weeping world
that he gave his own Son to weep with us, all the way to the place of utter forsakenness, that
whosoever believes in him will not weep forever,
but have everlasting joy.

Verse
Mark 15:34 NKJV

And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

Verse
Isaiah 53:3-6 ESV

He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned—every one—to his own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.

The Silence of God

Verse
Matthew 26:38 NLT

He [Jesus] told them, “My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.”

Quote

The first man [Adam] sinned and grieved only for himself, but the second Man [Jesus] knew no sin
yet grieved for us
so that we would not grieve forever.
