Even though it has been out for over 10 years now, I’ve only just watched The Passion of the Christ for the first time.
It is a great film, but difficult to watch. The depiction of Jesus being brutalised and killed was awful, but I can’t help but wonder that the real thing was even worse than this.
When I prayed that night, I asked the Lord if I could help to carry the cross that Jesus was forced to carry.
When I woke up in the morning, I felt awful. My neck and down the right-hand side of my body was aching. The Lord answered my prayer! God is good and what I felt was just a small proportion of what Jesus had to endure. It was good to be able to experience it though.
