“Jesus Is Crucified” — Luke 23:33-34
 
Consider how Jesus felt being thrown down upon the cross, ripping open the wounds of the scourgers whips. Consider how he extended his hands, allowing those terrible nails to be driven blow by blow into his outstretched hands. Consider those awful nails being driven into those feet, those feet that walked so far and tirelessly, bringing the good news of salvation to a hurting and hungering world. Jesus offered to God the sacrifice of his life for our salvation. His captors fastened him with nails to the cross, raised the cross, and left him to die in anguish and great suffering.
(No prayer, at this time, just silent individual meditation.)
 
 
 
Luke 23:33-34
 

33 When they arrived at the place called The Skull, they crucified him, along with the criminals, one on his right and the other on his left.34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they’re doing.” They drew lots as a way of dividing up his clothing.
