I'm not sure what to write about today because I feel like everything sounds cliche.
But my thoughts when I read these passages are about the kind of torture that Jesus went through. The pain and the suffering that he endured. All for you and me. If that doesn't leave us feeling completely at a loss for words than I'm not sure what could.
There were 2 things though that I read and hadn't noticed before...
Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home. John 19:25-27
Here Jesus is hanging on the cross and in the midst of his suffering he makes sure that his mom is cared for.
Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. John 19:31
