Jesus suffered on numerous occasions. He suffered verbally and physically.
The religious leaders were intent on eliminating this threat to their position and power.
At the hands of Rome, Jesus encountered suffering beyond imagination. He was beaten, ridiculed, mocked, crowned with thorns, spit upon, scourged, and nailed to a cross.
His suffering demonstrated the greatness of His leadership.
John Maxwell said, “The higher one goes in leadership, the greater the sacrifice.” Will suffering demonstrate the greatness of our leadership today?
