DAILY READINGS: Exodus 36:1-38; Psalm 89:1-18; Acts 21:17-40

And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. John 19:2

On his head were many crowns. Revelation 19:12, KJV 

In Pilate’s judgment hall there began a series of events meant to humiliate the Lord Jesus. Thorns, the product of the curse in Eden’s garden, were placed upon His head. It is a vivid picture of the place He took under awful condemnation. The day is coming when Jesus will wear many diadems of glory! In that day every knee will bow and confess Him as Lord. Dear reader it is wise to do it now. Make Him your Saviour! —Jim Paul

Behold the Lamb with glory crowned; To Him all power is given.
No place too high for Him is found, No place too high in Heaven.
—Thomas Kelly
