Lent Reflection – Do I resist Jesus’ lordship because it threatens my sovereignty?

We’ve arrived at the 30th day of Lent. I’m reading Brian Zahnd’s Lent devotional, The Unvarnished Jesus. I journal on the scripture he’s selected and his reflection, then I post daily (or near-daily) meditations in response. Mark 15:15-20 is the scripture reading today. Jesus is stripped and mocked by the Roman soldiers.
