The Crucified King
Topic: Topical Scripture: Matthew 27:27–27:44
This Sunday we will look at another of the great paradoxes in the Kingdom of God as we explore the treatment Jesus suffered in the lead up to, and during, His crucifixion. There was prophetic irony at play - as the soldiers adorned Jesus with a crown and robes to shame Him, they affirmed His Kingship without even recognising it.
Jesus was mocked, but what those who were ridiculing Him didn't realise was that by His humble submission to God the Father's redeeming plan, Jesus was in fact making a mockery out of the powers of darkness, as He conquered Satan, sin and death.
Do you realise that you too can make a mockery of the sin in your life through the power of our crucified King?
