2009 Lenten Devotional and Prayer Guide

April 10

 

Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.”  (Mark 15:15)

 

I never know how to feel about the actions of Pilate. He was the quintessential politician struggling between his conscience and the wants of his people. For most of us I am sure it’s not hard to relate to Pilate in that way. I have struggled –and often still do—with doing what I feel is right instead of what is popular or expected of me. Our nature as humans lends itself to this very dilemma. The answer comes when we accept that we are not in control. Giving ourselves in full to the Lord erases any questions. [Written by: Billie]
