No Limits

Here is a truth I never thought of before today.  A picture came to my mind of a dying Jesus on the cross. Many were mocking Him, challenging Him to do something about His condition.  Matthew 27:42-44 The Message 41-44 The high priests, along with the religion scholars and leaders, were right there mixing it up with the rest of them, having a great time poking fun at him: “He saved others—he can’t save himself!
