When Jesus was dying on the cross many people walked by making fun of Him, some even spit on the man.
On that dreadful day some turned to Christ and many rejected Him. There were many in the crowd that day who hated Him and He knew it and He even knew who they were!
He could have come off the cross that day and got revenge, but He did not.
Instead of revenge He prayed, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing!”
Friends, please listen, we as Christians still make fun of Him at times. When we sin, and He convicts us of that sin and we refuse to ask for forgiveness that’s just as bad as making fun of Him.
When we don’t obey Him it’s just as bad as us spitting in His face!
When we don’t spend time with Him daily we are rejecting Him!
You see, we’re no different than the religious Pharisees who did all those dreadful things to Him that day as He hung on the cross at Calvary.
Now, here’s the good part y’all. That same Jesus who prayed for them that day as He hung on the cross dying, is the same Jesus that is praying for us today!
Shoot, You Can’t Beat That With A Stick! Rejoice, Again I Say Rejoice!
