One horrible choice of a poor leader and an absurd cry from an out of control crowd, brought life to all of us who believe. Thank God for His sovereignty today.
The greatest tragedy of peer pressure was the crucifixion of Jesus. Pilot thought he was satisfying the crowd, but he was actually fulfilling the will of God! The cross was a horrible event in history, which became the critical moment for all of us who believe.
Pilot was a weak leader! Rather than doing the right thing, he choose to "gratify the crowd". He too, was a people pleaser. Have you noticed how that generally works out? In this case, it totally worked out for us. God's purposes were accomplished!
