He Died Alone

Recently we received news that a member from church had to be rushed to the hospital for medical intervention. As we spoke to her family checking up on her well-being, we soon became aware that there were absolutely no visitors allowed in the hospital, including in the emergency department where patients who were in distress and might not be able to communicate vital information, were being treated. Though I had known of the restrictions in place at the hospital, the reality of it never fully became clear until this situation occurred.

Then, we received the sad news that a member of our church had passed away. For some, it was particularly hard because they could not visit her during her final days in the hospital.

This pandemic has been extremely hard on families facing medical treatment or admittance to hospitals. They are there alone. Sadly, many of them spend their last days alone, without any of their loved ones around for support and comfort. This is absolutely heartbreaking!

And in all of this sadness, my mind has also turned to someone else who died alone, tortured and derided.

Jesus had no earthly person to depend on.

All of the disciples fled at Christ’s arrest.

Worse still, one of them denied Him.


Abandoned by men…

He faced His final hours.

Oh what a sad day it was.

Yet, it was a glorious day! It was a day of victory!

Jesus had lived a sinless life and died as our sacrifice.

It was done.

Victory was won!
