“They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.” Matthew 27:34Text — Matthew 27:27-37
Jesus Christ came from heaven to this wicked world and lived with us. He saw the spiritual condition of every human being; it was a pitiful state. Jesus decided to help us. First, He healed the sick, set the captives free, delivered the oppressed, provided bread and fish for the hungry and taught the way to live a good life. Secondly, He paid the price for our sins so that we should not perish. All that was done to Jesus Christ was what we were supposed to receive as punishments for our sins, but Jesus suffered it all.
He was mocked, stripped of his clothes, they put a crown of thorns on His head, they beat Him, spat at Him, gave Him vinegar to drink mixed with gall (a very bitter drink) and finally, they killed Him. All for YOU! Now Jesus Christ wants to be the King over your life. Will you accept Him or send Him away? Jesus Christ is only allowed to rule over your life if you turn away from what He hates and invite Him into your heart to be your personal Saviour and Lord. What is your decision?
