Rebel With a Cause

Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” (John 18:37)

 

Rebel with a Cause

 

In His day, Jesus created a stir with the establishment. He upset the norms of the day. He created unrest with the intellectual crowd. He formed a gang of twelve. He hung out with thieves and harlots and outcasts. He was arrested by anger, convicted by fear and sentenced to death by ignorance. He died a martyr; He arose a Savior; He lives forever.

 “…whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

  1. Short but sweet.

    May I add a small detail in the previous verse?? “‘NOW’ my kingdom is not from hence…”‘ meaning that one day it WILL be from hence. Ah yes, the smallest of words giving the altitude to truth.

    But Pilate was an interesting man, and certainly speaking like a prophet” ‘I find in him no fault.’ In light of the unblemished Lamb of God, thankfully still true.
