Old Testament Reading; Leviticus 21:1-22:33
31”Keep my commands and follow them, I am the Lord. 32Do not profane my holy name. I must be acknowledged as holy by the Israelites. I am the Lord, who makes you holy, 33and who brought you out of Egypt to be your God. I am the Lord.”
New Testament Reading; Mark 15:1-32
21:31 “In the same way the chief priest and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves, “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! 32”Let this Christ, 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.”
Kimberly’s thoughts; Jesus was in the middle of paying the price for our sins, because He loves us so very much. He was sacrificing for the very people who were hurting Him. He was about to do the greatest thing ever done in History, and He was facing incredible ridicule and discouragement. That is the way life can work, before we are about to do something great…we can face huge opposition. Be strong and determined for Christ!! He did it for you…DO it for Him!!
24”Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.”
