Just thinking of how Pilate gave the crowd a choice to either let the sinner go and punish Jesus or let Jesus go and punish the sinner. The crowd chose Jesus to be punished and set the sinner free.Jesus made the same choice as the crowd. He chose, from the very beginning of time, to let Himself be crucified and set the sinners free. The crowd made their choice out of hate and Jesus made the same choice out of love. The crowd chose Jesus over the sinner to be punished out of pure spite for Him. We choose Jesus to save us sinners out of pure love for Him because He willingly took the punishment for sin.We all still have free will to choose today. You are choosing Jesus one way or another. You are either willingly choosing to cast Him away in spite or you are choosing to accept His salvation out of love. What do you choose? Sin’s punishment or God’s unyeilding grace and mercy?Where are you choosing your eternal soul to reside? With the crowd casting Him away? Or with Jesus at the cross, sin crucified, and covered in His love? This was not a choice He took lightly. You shouldn’t either. Eternity is a really, really long time.He loves you more than my words could ever express. One day every knee will bow realizing how glorious that love is. Every knee will bow at how holy our God is.Let the sinner go and choose Jesus.
