Bethlehem’s Christmas child grew to world’s sacrificial Lamb of God. A wreath of thorns crowned his head as he bore my sin and shame. “They made a crown out of thorn branches and placed it on his head (Matthew 27:29a CEV).”
In mockery, soldiers hung twisted thorns upon him. Their minds were twisted, distorting the truth of God in their midst. Thank you, Lord Jesus; you hung upon the cross for me. Christmas wreaths are reminders of your woven crown, which bore crimson bloodstains of love.
