Christ's Sufferings

As we approach Good Friday, I am reminded of a black shirt that I wear often. On the front of the shirt it says, FOR YOU HE WAS.... Then it says on the back, Betrayed, Falsly Accused, Mocked, Judged, Condemned, Whipped, Punched, Slapped, Spit upon, Pushed Around, Humiliated, Stripped Down, Cursed At, Abused, Pierced, and Crucified. John 3:16 with a cross in the background.

Reflect on that throughout the day and throughout Good Friday in a couple days.

Soli Deo Gloria!

Wow...that is powerful Joshua.

Can you imagine if before choosing to sin or before we make decisions we would examine what the cost would be? What the consequences were to Christ Jesus for our sinful thoughts, deeds and actions?

That you Jesus that because of Your sacrifice we won't bear the eternal price for our sin.
