We Still Prefer Evil

Luke 23 .25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
Pilate appealed for Jesus to the crowd, saying that he’d found no evil in this man (Jesus), that he should be released. But the crowd demanded that Barabbas be released instead. Barabbas was an inciter and a murderer. The crowd chose vindication for Barabbas, and a cruel death to our sinless Savior.
People have not changed. We desire, nay, demand, that evil be released unto us; and that God be tortured and put away.
God have mercy on our souls. May we turn to Him as He calls us, prostrate ourselves before Almighty God, and worship Him with all our hearts, all our souls, all our minds, and all our strengths.

  1. The chief priests (their leaders) were in the crowd psyching them up to release Barabbas and crucify Jesus. Not much different from today….

  2. I just read in The Daily Wire that atheism is now the largest religion in the United States. We really need God to show Himself gracious, merciful and strong on behalf of His people who live here.

  4. So very sad, but true! We are all in great need of the Lord’s grace, mercy, and protection each day. To carry on as if God does not exist is pride and conceit to the extreme, and leads only to more grief and mayhem in our lives. May we always remember how much we need the Lord each day, and behave accordingly. ✝️
