Have you ever wondered how Christ endured the physical pain at His crucifixion... the scourge, the nails...?
It is an established fact that spiritual abuse is far more damaging and painful, and can induce a narcosis effect, dulling physical pain.
His betrayal by a DISCIPLE must have been worse than the scourging, the pain of being denied by Peter, His future PASTOR must have hurt more than nails.
Do we, as followers, disciples, pastors etc betray Jesus with our lifestyles, deny Him with our deeds?
Let's stop hurting Him with a pain worse than nails!
