The Soldiers Mock Jesus
16 The soldiers led Jesus away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium) and called together the whole company of soldiers. 17 They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him. 18 And they began to call out to him, “Hail, king of the Jews!” 19 Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him. 20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.
The Crucifixion of Jesus
21 A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross. 22 They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means “the place of the skull”). 23 Then they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it. 24 And they crucified him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots to see what each would get.
25 It was nine in the morning when they crucified him. 26 The written notice of the charge against him read: the king of the jews.
27 They crucified two rebels with him, one on his right and one on his left.  [a]29 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days,30 come down from the cross and save yourself!” 31 In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! 32 Let this Messiah, this king of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him.
The Death of Jesus
33 At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.34 And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).
35 When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.”
36 Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said.
37 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.
MAHAL KA NI CHRIST! Oo mahal ka Nya. Tinanggap Nya lahat ng yun para sa’yo. Tinubos Nya lang naman lahat ng kasalanan mo. Tiniis Nya lahat ng sakit at hirap, dahil sobra ka Nyang mahal at gusto Nyang iligtas sa apoy ng impyerno.
At that time, sobrang nahirapan si Christ. Pwede Syang magmiracle at that time. Pwede Nyang itigil ang lahat ng yun at magmilagro at maipakita sa lahat ng tao na Siya ang totong Panginoon. Pero kung ginawa Nya yun, paano tayo? Paano na ang mga kasalanan natin? Magpeperish tayo. Pero hindi. Hinayaan Niyang mangyari ang lahat ng yun, para sa atin.
Ito ang Greatest love. Ang ultimate sacrifice. Walang makakatumbas sa pagmamahal na yun. So ano ang pwede mong gawin knowing na ganito ka kamahal ng Lord?
- Hindi mo man matutumbasan ang greatest love, Mahalin mo Sya nang buong puso. Gawin mong worth it ang Love nya sa’yo
- Follow him at gawin mo ang lahat masunod lang ang teachings Nya. Isipin mo na lang na ang mga sacrifices na gagawin mo ay wala kumpara sa pagkamatay ni Christ.
- Wag kang mahiya. Ipagmalaki mo ang greatest love na natanggap mo. Kapag nagwoworship, kapag sinasamba mo Siya, wag kang mahihiya. Greatest love yan uyy. Hindi ikinakahiya.
- Ibahagi sa iba ang Greatest at Ultimate Love na nareceive mo. Hindi lang ikaw ang iniligatas Niya, kundi ang buong mundo. Ipakilala mo sya sa mundo. Gawin mo ding worth it ang Love ng Lord para sa kanila.
