They gave Him sour wine mingled with gall to drink. But when He had tasted it, He would not drink. Matt 27:34
At His crucifixion, the soldiers offered a painkiller to Jesus. Many others that suffered the same execution took the offer. He refused it.
Jesus wanted to experience the full force of the penalty for my sin.
I’m amazed how many try to deaden their own sin with “painkillers” like drugs and alcohol. Some even convince themselves there is no God so they don’t have to live with the pain of sin and its judgment.
Others accept the idea of a sinful lifestyle by painkilling God’s word and making it fully acceptable.
Only through the acceptance of Jesus as Savior can you truly be free from pain. It is written “There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Rev 21:4
Your pain is gone because Jesus took it upon Himself!
His pain – Your Gain!
