Remember the crown of thorns
The mother of Franklin Graham, Ruth Bell Graham, for the most part was bedridden during the last months of her life.
She had a crown of thorns hung in her bedroom. When her pain would become great, she would turn herself so that she would have that crown of thorns in view.
She said it reminded her of the pain and suffering her Savior willingly endured for her sake.
He was mocked and spat on by those He came to save. He was stripped, beaten, tortured, and publicly executed on a Roman cross.
But as Christians, we owe our salvation to the fact it didn’t end there. God raised His only Son from the grave on the third day in victory over sin and death! Hallelujah!
No matter what you are going through today (we know times have been tough for so many over the past year) may we be reminded of the crown of thorns and that God loves you so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the price for your sins and mine.
Paul writes, “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 3:23)
Now, that is Good News worth sharing. Happy Easter to each and everyone.
