The Way of the Cross (2)


Jesus was scourged. The whips cut His back until it was shredded and bathed in His blood. A crown of thorns was set on His head in mockery. Then they returned His robe to Him, and brought Him to the cross on which He was to die.

Jesus embraced the cross, resting it painfully on the smarting wounds on His back.

Lord, You were scourged and wounded;
You deserved no punishment.
but were punished in our place.
Thank you, Jesus.
Thank you, Jesus.

When You were already hurting,
You embraced the cross.
Thank you, Jesus.
Thank you, Jesus.

Apart from the great purpose of atonement, the way of the cross also teaches us to live our lives faithfully in light of the mystery of evil and suffering. I am always comforted that God in Christ suffers with us.....and helps us embrace the crosses in our lives, in a way that brings glory to God.

Hi Lilian,

It is so true. Without God, we will never be able to carry our crosses.
