It’s so easy to read this passage of Scripture and move to the next without understanding and appreciating what Jesus endured for you and me. I know this to be true because I almost did it yesterday as I finished reading the Gospel of John.
I read this passage of Scripture and was going to continue until I was prompted to look up the word “scourge.”
Let’s remember the brutal death Jesus suffered and His miraculous resurrection and ascension. Let’s remember His suffering when the world demands us to affirm its sins. Let’s remember the stripes He bore when they, in the name of unity, attempt to share and usurp our Lord’s glory, by asking us to acknowledge and accept their false gods and religions.
There is one God, and the only way to Him is through Jesus Christ, His Son.
Let’s remember, honor, and revere Him. And in remembering Him, let’s do what He commanded us to do: (1) Love God and (2) Love others (Matthew 22:37-39). ❤
