John 19

John 19

“Then Pilate took Jesus and flogged him. And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe.” John 19:1-2

Here we witness one of the lowest points in human history. God the Creator, now subject to His creation. The one who should have had a crown of many jewels, of honor and glory, now wears a crown of twisted thorns.

He wore the crown of thorns for you. Did you know that? That crown should’ve been on your head. The wrath of God should’ve fallen upon you! But instead, God’s judgment fell upon His Son. He was judged unrighteously. He was treated unfairly. He was oppressed until death, “even the death of the cross.”.

I once heard from an old friend that you either stand with Jesus on the cross, or you stand with them who mocked him…Warrior, where do you stand?
