“…They all condemned him as worthy of death. Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said, “Prophesy!” And the guards took him and beat him.” - Mark 14:64, 65.
Jesus was mocked, and humiliated. He was punched, beaten, flogged, and spit at. He was innocent, yet falsely accused, and crucified. I imagine Jesus was possibly mutilated beyond recognition. The Son of God, chose to leave His throne because of His love for me - My Lord, My Master, My Friend… I cry with tears, because Jesus did all this for me… How can I complain? How can I doubt? How can I be unfaithful? How can I stop fighting my former self-serving nature, and not exchange it for His glory? I will never give up! O may Christ be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death! Lord, I offer up my life and say, “Jesus, this will be my body, broken for you.”
