She knew her son’s death was not the end; there was a greater purpose to his suffering.
Matthew 27: 11-54
From the very beginning, Mary knew that her son was special. An angel had appeared to her, announcing that she would bear a child by the power of the Holy Spirit. As she watched him grow, she saw him perform miracles and speak with an authority that surpassed human un derstanding.
But as soldiers led him away, Mary felt helpless and desperate. She knew he was innocent yet couldn’t stop the unfolding events. At the foot of the cross, Mary watched her son die, consumed by grief and sorrow. She witnessed his suffering, mockery, and beatings, and now his death.
Despite her pain, Mary clung to a sense of peace and hope. She knew her son’s death was not the end; there was a greater purpose to his suffering. She believed God was in control and working out His plan. Mary trusted her son’s death would bring redemption and salvation for all humanity.
Amid her mourning, Mary held onto the hope of his resurrection and that his death would not be in vain. Her faith was rewarded as she witnessed her son triumph over death and sin.
