And after twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand, then they knelt in front of him and mocked him, "Hail, king of the Jews!" They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again.
Matthew 27: 29-30
In just one week, Jesus was welcomed by the crowds with cheers and praise, he shared a last meal with his disciples, knowing that one would turn on and betray him. Finally he was tortured, beaten, and mocked before dying a gruesome death on the cross.
Yet, before He took his last breath he said
"Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they're doing."
What are you holding on to that is blocking your relationship with Jesus?
It's time to let it go.
