Wednesday, March 18, 2009 – Three Nails – Mark 15:22-24

Jesus’ death and crucifixion are the most vivid of all of Scripture. Pilate wanting to satisfy the crowd released Barabas to them and he delivered Jesus after he had scourged Him to be crucified. Then they clothed him with purple, and they twisted a crown of thorns and put it on His head also they saluted Him by saying, ‘hail, king of the Jews’ and the struck Him on the head with a reed. They took him to the place called the place of the skull and gave Him wine mingled with myrrh but He did not take it. So then they crucified Him and divided His garments. Because of His death and his nail scared hands and feet our sins which are many are gone.

Dear God, nobody should go through crucifixion like Jesus did. Because of His death grant us many and happy years.
