Jesus, You were MOCKED with contempt and ridicule.  The people were MOCKING You - saying that You had saved others, why didn't You save Yourself?  But they didn't understand that what You were doing was SAVING THEM.  If You saved Yourself - the world would not have been reconciled to You.   Jesus, You CHOSE to stay on the cross - for me and for the ones who were MOCKING You.  Oh Jesus, thank You  - because of Your love for me - You endured MOCKERY and abuse on the cross!   I worship You, my Jesus!!

(Have you accepted this love that was given for you?  Worship and praise Him today - the One who was MOCKED for you!!)#100dayswithjesus
