There are many verses in Psalm 34 that help us reflect on Christ's work on the cross. Read through a few of these and see what I mean.
- "The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them." (V.17) - Jesus was totally pure, holy and righteous when he died on the Cross. Although his cry from the Cross seems to fall on the deaf ears of the Father, he is heard. The Lord hears all our cries.
- "The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." (v.18) - Our God is able to relate to all of our pain and suffering, because he went through the agony of the cross. He is able to save our crushed spirit's as well offer us eternal life.
- "He protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken." (V.19) - This prophecy is fulfilled on Good Friday, when not one of Jesus' bones were broken.
