Good Friday: Repentance
Every human alive today would be wise to come to repentance of sins and accept Jesus Christ as Lord, Savior and King. The prophet Isaiah foretold of the day of Jesus’ crucifixion when he said:
“I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting” (Isaiah 50:6).
On the day that our Lord, Savior and King was crucified, he endured unimaginable things at the hands of the roman soldiers who mocked, scourge and spit on him (Mark 10:24).
“And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Prætorium; and they call together the whole band. And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head, And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him” (Mark 15:16-20).
