As sad as this story is, it gives us a prime example of the true price that Jesus paid for us. Jesus just stood there. He took an intense beating. A beating that would eventually take His life. He did this knowing that He was about to die for our sake.
I have learned in my life that I allow myself a certain amount of time to soak in my emotions, and issues at hand. Depending on the severity of the issue is how long I give myself.
I would’ve never thought I would be in this type of situation. To have everything stripped from you and feel so helpless is a feeling that no one should ever have to feel. As the rifle was pointed at me less than two feet away, I thought my life was over.
