“They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on His head. They put a staff in His right hand and knelt in front of Him and mocked Him. “Hail King of the Jews” they said. They spit on Him, and took the staff and struck Him on the head again and again. After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put His own clothes on Him. Then, they led Him out to crucify Him. “ Matthew 27:27-31
Over two thousand years ago, Jesus was stripped down to nothing on His way to the cross. Jesus was mocked on His way to the Cross. Jesus was spit on, on His way to the Cross. Jesus was beat up on His way to the Cross.
Jesus made the unimaginable path to the Cross over two thousand years ago, but what was accomplished on the Cross that day still stands for us.
Because of The Cross, our sins are forgiven.
Because of The Cross, our Salvation is secure.
Because of The Cross, all feelings of shame and guilt are gone.
Even if, you feel unworthy, drowning in depression and striving to feel worth again in this world…Jesus still would have made His way to the Cross to show YOU are worth dying for.
Even if, the world may be telling you are not enough, you need to do more, you are not doing it right, your dreams are too big….Jesus still would have made His way to the Cross to show YOU are enough for Him.
Even if, your past mistakes are weighing heavily on you and the shame is stealing all joy out of life…Jesus still would have made His way to the Cross to show you that YOU are valuable Him.
Even if, you were the only one on this earth, guess what? Jesus still would have made His way to the Cross and gone to hell and back, so YOU can live.
Jesus still would have made His way to The Cross for you then, today and always. This is how much Jesus loves YOU #CrossEqualsLove
