John 19:1-3 Then Pilate had Jesus flogged with a led-tipped whip. The soldiers wove a crown of thorns and put it on his head and they put a purple robe on him, "Hail! King of the Jews!" they Mocked, as the slapped him across the face.
That is love to take all of this because of our sins and then to die on the cross. Today I though of my own children and how much I love them. How much I hurt when they hurt, what pain I feel when somebody does something to them to make them unhappy. When I am unhappy, I am just unhappy but when they are unhappy I feel pain! Can you imagine what pain God flet, as He watched down from heaven at sinners mocking and hurting His perfect child? God did that for us!! That is love beyond understanding!!
