The King Mocked

God will not be mocked. God is jealous. He insists upon what is His due.
Yet, for the sake of sinners, the King of the Jews stands silent before His
accusers. He endures the mocking and taunting of words and actions that
feign the honor He is due. Why would God allow us to mock Him? It is all
about salvation. The Son of God stands falsely accused for us. He allows
Himself to be mocked and abused. That is what He must do if He is to
restore the lost sinners, reclaim them to life, and repair the wrong that
sin did. He is mocked and taunted so that He might be enthroned and
honored—so that you and I might be enthroned and honored.
