John 19:31-37 (primary verse 34)
The Crucifixion was prophesied and fulfilled to the letter. He was mocked, bore shame and reproach and gave His life for you. It was not taken from Him… He freely gave it.
The Father permitted His Son to go through such extreme torture because of the seriousness of our sin. Jesus’ side was pierced and out flowed blood and water. The Blood washes away our guilt and sin. The Water gives us the power to overcome it.
Rev. Yohn / 3-29 Palm Sunday
