Read the Gospel accounts of the brutal torture and execution of Jesus Christ and you will see that Jesus was slapped, beaten, mocked, spat upon, scourged, beaten again, and nailed to a wooden cross. Jesus was bruised, broken, battered, bloodied, and betrayed. The flesh was torn from His back and His body was pierced by nails. His death was gruesome, agonizing, and excruciating. His manner of sacrifice is a good example of the depths to which men can stoop in their brutal torture of others. Why did God allow His Son to endure this? He did so because He loves us (John 3:16).

Knowing what Christ has done for me I must ask myself, ďwhatís wrong with me?Ē What is wrong with me if...

1. I donít care to pray frequently to God (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

2. I donít care to study my Bible daily (Acts 17:11).

3. I donít care to assemble with the saints (Hebrews 10:25).

4. 1 wonít dedicate my life to serving God (Romans 12:1, 2).

Whatís wrong with me? I simply do not appreciate the sacrifice that was made for me. I simply do not love God enough for what He has done. Is there something wrong with you?
