The weight of Jesus’ Cross was enough but Jesus also carried the weight of our sin…that’s heavy!
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Matthew 27: 37 A sign was fastened above Jesus' head, announcing the charge against him. It read: "This is Jesus, the King of the Jews."
Read - Matthew 27:33–37; Mark 15:22–26; Luke 23:32–34;John 19:17–24
Jesus is led towards the place of the skull where He would lay down His perfect life with humility so that we could be forgiven. The nails are hammered into His hands and feet and yet He still prays for the forgiveness of His oppressors. This is the heart of God and needs be our own heart…to forgive beyond anything natural is the supernatural love God has for us and has given us a charge to have for others.
Lord, I will live with forgiveness of those who hurt me.

Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. Here Jesus begins to pour out His life’s blood and we begin to have a chance at life both now and forever. The Marring Power of Sin is being broken and the Mending power of Christ is being offered so that we can be saved. Praise God.
