Cross Sufferings

Christ suffered physically, emotionally and spiritually while going through the sufferings on the cross for our sins. Physically, Jesus was scourged, beaten and was crowned with thorns (John 19:1-2). He carried the cross while going to Golgotha. Emotionally, Jesus must have been thinking about the betrayal of Judas Iscariot, and denial of Simon Peter (John 18:27)Spiritually, Jesus expressed the Father forsaking Him, when Christ became sin for our sake (Mark 15:34). Considering the sufferings of Christ, let us be encouraged that He who went through physical, emotional and spiritual sufferings, strengthens us by His Spirit (1 Peter 2:21)
