When Jesus finally reached the top He painted for a moment to catch His breathe but before He could the men grabbed Him. One grabbed the cross and planted it firmly into the ground. The others took Him and dragged Him to that same cross and tied Him there.
You could hear the crowd screaming “Crucify Him, Crucify Him!” The words burned in the heart of Christ as He hung there. Yet, with those very words He still was able to show His love through it all. “Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do!” He pleaded!
At that moment, the guard began to lift the hammer and started pounded it into the hands and feet of Jesus. Drip.. drop.. drip.. drop.. are the sounds I imagine as the crimson red drops of blood fell from His body and the sounds of screams grew louder and louder. The pain and agony He felt as the nails penetrated deep into His flesh. The thorns that He bore deep into His skull upon His head.
The crowds words grew stronger and more hateful. Still, Christ showed mercy and love to them all. Isn’t that how Christ really is? Doesn’t He do this with us today?
That was the reason He died on the cross. It was the reason for His crimson red drops of blood as they fell steadily one by one to the ground. They fell until He could no longer breathe. The guards all laughed and mocked Him as He died that day. But the love He showed was so merciful. Because of this, it give us a way that we will always be able to live on forever in our hearts.
How blessed we are for the crimson red drops of blood that He shed! How blessed indeed! Blessed to know how much He truly loves us. That He was willing to take the beating’s and shed the crimson red drops of blood for us. Willing that He had taken the harsh words from those whom watched Him that day.
Christ love will fill my red heart with joy and laughter for knowing Him. Knowing Him with all of my heart. How blessed am I for the crimson red blood He shed for me upon that day in Golgotha!
