When she got the top of the hill Sangreta looked for her oldest son. She could find him nowhere. She ran through the crowd asking neighbors, Where is Dinakren? Have you seen Dinakren? One neighbor said she had seen the boy going into their hut. Just then the giant wave of water hit the shore and crashed into the village. It crushed the boats on the beach and flattened the huts of the village. Sangreta saw the concrete walls of her own hut collapse before the terrible weight and force of the water. The destruction of the hut meant one thing to Sangreta. It meant her son had died inside. She fell to the ground weeping, her heart broken with grief for her boy whom she loved.
Sangreta had been forced to make an agonizing choice between the children she would carry to safety. God, too, made an agonizing decision so that sinners might be carried to safety. The Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. In love to a perishing world, God the Father sent the Lord Jesus down to this earth where he would suffer, bleed, and die on the cross, so sinners might be saved.
The Lord Jesus knew, if he didnt become the sin-bearer and go through the agony of the cross, no one would ever make it to heaven. The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus, the spotless Lamb of God, was willing to give his life so all who afterwards believe on him might not have to pay the fearful penalty of sin.
Hear his agonizing cry from the cross, My God, My God why hast thou forsaken me? He was forsaken so that sinners might be forgiven and find a place of safety. For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God. Can you turn away from the loving Savior who died for you? Surely there is no other way to be saved but through faith in Him.
