Mark 15:29 — “And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads…” This is the last sermon preached at our church in 2021. We began the year at the cross and that’s where we finish. We think particularly about those who passed by and mocked the Lord Jesus while He was dying. We think about what might have motivated them and how their cruelty added to Jesus’ agony. As we consider all of this, we are reminded of just how much Jesus loves us. His wonderful love has been one of the constants in a year marked by disruption and change.
