In this Lenten season leading to Easter, we think of the Passion of the Lord ~ how he went through the agony, was scourged and crowned with thorns, etc., ending with Crucifixion. Then I thought of one excruciating moment: After Jesus had been nailed to the cross, the whole cross had to be lifted up, dropped into the hole, set straight, and compacted to stay in the upright position. There had to be a lot of violent jerking and shaking of the cross with Christ on it during the process. Imagine how painful it must have been for him, our most loving Lord!!! May he be appreciated and glorified forever and more.
