Verse of the Day

They came to a place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull). There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots.  And sitting down, they kept watch over him there.  Above his head they placed the written charge against him: this is jesus, the king of the jews. [NIV] Matthew 27:33-37

…..

“Golgotha” was a place as infamous as our Tyburn (a former village in the county of Middlesex UK synonymous with capital punishment), and to be crucified at “Golgotha”, was as ignominious as to be hanged at Tyburn; which shows what shame and disgrace our Lord was brought, and what he condescended to bear on our account [Gill’s Exposition]. Jesus Christ was led as a Lamb to the slaughter, as a Sacrifice to the altar. Even the mercies of the wicked are really cruel. Taking the cross from him, they compelled one Simon to bear it. Make us ready, O Lord, to bear the cross thou hast appointed us, and daily to take it up with cheerfulness, following thee. Was ever sorrow like unto his sorrow? And when we behold what manner of death he died, let us in that behold with what manner of love he loved us. As if death, so painful a death, were not enough, they added to its bitterness and terror in several ways. [Matthew Henry]. Thank you Jesus for this wonderful price that you paid, so that I could Live. #PassionofChrist #ChristCrucifixion #ChristResurrection  #JesusSaves #JesusLives #Verseoftheday
