Good Friday • Pontius Pilate goes back and forth between Jesus and the chief priests. When he listens to Jesus, he hears the truth and feels peace. When he listens to the crowd, he becomes confused and fearful.
Peter ultimately listens to the crowd. Mary and John, Joseph and Nicodemus, ultimately listen to Jesus. What about you: Do you listen to Jesus and turn away from the crowd, or listen to the crowd and reject Jesus?
Going Deeper: Turn off the voices of the crowd today and spend some time in silence listening to the Lord.
