I like to think we would each stand for the right thing, for the truth. Do you KNOW Him? If you don’t know Him intimately then ask Him right now to speak to you , to reveal Himself to you. He can and will if you are seeking Him in truth. He has to do it and nothing that anyone might say can show Jesus to you or put you in the place where you KNOW that you KNOW that you KNOW you are a child of the one true God. If you are unsure then start today and talk to Him and bathe in His word and He will open your ears and your eyes and remove the impurities from your heart. He is waiting. / If you don’t know Him in that way then ask yourself this, would you be in the crowd in yhe scripture below yelling CRUCIFY…CRUCIFY?
As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, “Crucify! Crucify!”But Pilate answered, “You take him and crucify him. As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him.” The Jewish leaders insisted, “We have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God.” When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid, and he went back inside the palace. “Where do you come from?” he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer. “Do you refuse to speak to me?” Pilate said. “Don’t you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?” Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.”
Pilate wants nothing to do with the crucifixion of Jesus, yet the Jewish leaders continue forcing his hand. Pilate is afraid, and he is beginning to believe that there might be some truth to Jesus’ claim: the Son of God, Messiah. Jesus is the King that Israel always needed, He is the King that all people need in order to be in right standing with God. He is the ONLY one qualified to be that King – forever mediating our relationship with God.
