Mark chapter 14

People hurt Jesus

Verse 65

People were cruel to Jesus. They hurt him. They covered his face. They showed that they did not want him to live. They asked him to speak Godís words. But they did not really believe that he ever spoke Godís words.

We too have done wrong things against Jesus. We did not hurt him. But we refused to believe him. We refused to let him into our lives. Like those men, we were against him.

The Bible said that this would happen (Isaiah 53:3). God let it happen so that Jesus would die on behalf of us all (Isaiah 53:4-6). But now we must ask God to come into our lives. Now, we must ask him to *forgive us.
