The Station of The Cross

Mark 15:22-32

Have you ever been falsely accused? Has there ever been a season of your life that seemed a constant barrage of insults and accusations? How did you respond? Did you retaliate at worst or at least hold a grudge? Jesus knows. He understands that these are the natural responses. Jesus faced the ultimate false accusation as he was being crucified. Through his excruciating pain, in righteous anger, Jesus could have revealed the fullness of his glory and then obliterated those who accused him. Instead, Jesus endured the cross, insults and false accusations. He endured it to be the savior his accusers needed. If you’re in a season of accusation, Jesus understands. Pray for his strength to endure and ultimately to forgive.
