Even as He was ridiculed for His seeming lowliness and weakness, Jesus conquered spiritual forces of darkness and inaugurated the Kingdom of God. He lovingly purchased salvation for the world while it looked like He was being defeated by the world. Jesus was mocked and beaten by sinners so that we could be honored and healed by God. As His people, we’re called to take up our cross and follow Him, laying down our lives in love to serve and rescue others.
