DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Do You Mock Jesus?
Mk. 15: 16-32
The passage gives a clear picture of the torments that Christ had to go through. He was beaten with blows to the head, mockingly called the Son of God, Messiah, and the King of the Jews. “He saved others; himself he cannot save”. The people who mocked Him were right, Jesus Christ is the Son of God, our Messiah. He could indeed have saved Himself by coming down from the cross. The irony of the matter is Christ was saving others, saving us by choosing to remain on that cross, bearing the brunt of our collective sin. We make a mockery of his efforts to transform us back to God’s glory every time we go into sin.
Point of Emphasis: We are just like the ones mocking Jesus at Golgotha if we continue sinning.
Prayer Point: Help me Father not to mock Christ’s sacrifice by my words, thoughts and actions.
