“Now during a festival, Pilate used to set free one prisoner, whomever the crowd requested. There was in prison among the rebels who had committed murder during the insurrection a man called Bar-Abba.”
Mark 15:6-7 CJB
We all have to make choices and decisions and we need to be careful of allowing the world to dictate them! We need to always choose the LORD in everything, even though we live at a time where that is increasingly getting harder!
“But the head cohanim (priest) stirred up the crowd to have him release Bar-Abba for them instead. Pilate again said to them, Then what should I do with the man you call the King of the Jews? They shouted back, Put Him to death on the stake!”
Mark 15:11-13 CJB
We see the same thing today, men would like to remove Yeshua (Jesus) from society and choose murderers, liars and deceivers instead! Are we going to follow the crowd that hates the LORD or are we going to follow the LORD? Realize, it may cost you to follow the LORD!
“So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the mob, set Bar-Abba free for them; but he had Yeshua whipped and then handed Him over to be executed on the stake.”
Mark 15:15 CJB
Today, be careful of trying to satisfy the crowd (the mob) to temporarily please men or not make waves! But, instead choose the LORD who will always satisfy and never let us down!
Have a blessed day in the LORD!
