And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the center.
In John 19, we read that Jesus allowed people to put a crown of thorns on His head, mock Him, strike Him, strip Him, and crucify Him (John 19:1-6).
He had the power to stop them, but He said very little (John 19:11).
He did it all for love’s sake to pay for our sins and to rescue us from punishment.
How much does God love us?
Jesus spread out His arms and was nailed to the cross.
He died for us, then rose again.
That’s a precious fact for followers of Christ.
The truest measure of God’s love is that He loves us without measure!
