Praising God with the Best of the Past and the Present

Journey through Lent – Day 26

Mark 15: 16-20
The soldiers led Jesus away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium) and called together the whole company of soldiers. They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him. And they began to call out to him, “Hail, king of the Jews!” Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him. And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.

The horror of the journey to the cross is becoming clearer – the spit, the spikes, the thorns and the spear – and the unspeakable sins of a polluted world heaped upon Jesus. At any point he could have chosen to walk away and leave us in our sin. But he did not. He endured – for you and for me.
