Matthew 27:39-40 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!”
Jesus, King of heaven, I praise and thank you for your suffering and death on Calvary. You loved me enough to stay on the cross and complete your work of salvation. When the world mocks me and taunts me because I am your disciple, strengthen my convictions so that I may remain faithful to you. Keep my eyes fixed on your cross and the forgiveness and life it brings. Amen.
