All that was left was to die. Jesus had come to earth, lived a perfect life, conveyed the Father’s message and started building a force to carry the message after he was gone.
Still, dying after being immortal since before time was even created was no small task. For Jesus, it was not the physical abuse that was a concern, it was the separation from the father, the taking on of sin and actual death that was his sacrifice. He had always been alive–but, now he would not.
Thankfully, he thought we were worth it. This sacrifice, as great as it was, was deemed worthy in God’s eyes to redeem us from being separated for eternity. That, more than any other thing should convey how much we are loved and valued by our Heavenly Father. All he asks for, in return, is that we accept this amazing gift and allow him to restore what sin once destroyed.
It is an extremely fair trade!!!
God Bless You
Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.So the soldiers took charge of Jesus.
Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull which in Aramaic is called Golgotha.
There they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle.
Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: jesus of nazareth, the king of the jews.
When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.
“Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.”This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled that said,“They divided my clothes among themand cast lots for my garment.”So this is what the soldiers did.
