What kind of King is it that would allow people to arrest him illegally?  What kind of King is it that would allow people to spit in his face? What kind of King is it that would allow people to beat him up?  What kind of King is it that would allow people to mock him?  What kind of King is it that would allow people to slap him in the face?  What kind of King is it that would allow people to whip him until his back was a mess of bloody wounds?  The only King that allowed all this to happen to him is the Lord Jesus Christ!  He is the greatest king to ever live and yet he allowed people to do all this to him.  The question that echoes in my mind is why?  Why would the King of all kings go through the suffering he endured at the hands of sinful people?  The reason is his great love for us.  Our King Jesus loved us enough to go through all of this for us!   In light of what he has done for us, we should not doubt for one second that Jesus loves us.  What an amazing King we serve!
