Crown of Thorns Perspective

In Max Lucado‘s daily devotion, his entry for September 2nd was on “The Thorns of Sin”.

“The Thorns of Sin – September 2

“Evil people’s lives are like paths covered with thorns and traps.”
Proverbs 22:5

The fruit of sin is thorns—spiny, prickly, cutting thorns.

I emphasize the “point” of the thorns to suggest a point you may have never considered: If the fruit of sin is thorns, isn’t the thorny crown on Christ’s brow a picture of the fruit of our sin that pierced his heart?

What is the fruit of sin? Step into the briar patch of humanity and feel a few thistles. Shame. Fear. Disgrace. Discouragement. Anxiety. Haven’t our hearts been caught in these brambles?

The heart of Jesus, however, had not. He had never been cut by the thorns of sin. What you and I face daily, he never knew. Anxiety? He never worried! Guilt? He was never guilty! Fear? He never left the presence of God! Jesus never knew the fruits of sin…until he became sin for us.
