Dear Americans, please stop offending your God. He is your all-loving and all-merciful Creator, and He is also your all-just Judge. And even if you will not have Him, He is your all-powerful King. Please stop crowning Him with a new crown of thorns every single day by the enormity of your sins. Hasn’t He already suffered enough at the hands of His rebellious subjects? Must we continue to drive the thorns deeper and deeper into His skull while we spit on Him and mock Him to His Holy Face?
I, for one, refuse to stand by silently any longer as my Lord is insulted. I resolve to be bold in my faith and stand up for Christ my King. When I see Him offended, I will admonish the offender. I will offer reparation to my outraged Savior. I will beg of Him to permit me to draw close and pull the thorns from His head. I will fashion for Him a crown more fitting—a crown made for a King.
I love Thee, Jesus, my love. I love Thee more than myself. Never permit me to offend Thee again. Grant only that I may love Thee always, and then do with me what Thou wilt.
My Jesus, mercy.
