The headline said “Broken hearts at a higher risk of failing.” It referred to a recent study of nearly a million people showing that the death of a life partner may trigger the risk of dying of a broken heart. This study parallels the death of Jesus, demonstrating His great love for us all. John, in his gospel, wrote, “when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead…one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.” Dr. Truman Davis, writes, “We, therefore, have rather conclusive post-mortem evidence that Our Lord died, not the usual crucifixion death by suffocation, but of heart failure…” heart failure that began… in the garden…continued to build when he was rejected by many of his disciples and came to utter fruition when his people nailed him to a cross.” Oh how He loves you and me!.
