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
