Today's Devotion is "The Patience of Jesus" (Day 22 in our series 40 Days of Easter Truth)
Our Easter Focus Passage today is: Psalm 22:7–8
7 All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads.
8 “He trusts in the Lord,” they say, “let the Lord rescue him. Let him deliver him, since he delights in him.”
Now, here's today's Easter Truth:
These two verses in Psalm 22 are a foreshadow of the suffering and pain that Jesus Christ would endure on the cross. Beyond just an experience in Jesus' life, these verses also show His patience and His passion for the entire world. While people laughed at Him, mocked Him, called Him names, and insulted His character, Jesus hung on the cross willingly to bring forth the hope that we so desperately need.
