The soldiers took Him away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium), and they called together the whole Roman cohort. They dressed Him up in purple, and after twisting a crown of thorns, they put it on Him; 18 and they began to acclaim Him, “Hail, King of the Jews!” Mark 15:16-17
The Romans ignorantly mocked Jesus. Little did they know they were mocking the actual King of the Jews and ruler of the world. There are few more polarizing figures in history than Jesus of Nazareth. One of the best descriptions I have heard about how I feel about Jesus is in a short video by Dr. Samuel Lockridge called My King. Please watch it… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzqTFNfeDnE
Does my life reflect that Jesus is my king? Or do I in any way mock Him?
Lord Jesus, just to call you my Lord is a defining statement. I belong to You and have dedicated my life to following You.
