- The world chooses leaders differently than God chooses them. The world looks for leaders that make sweeping bold statements and portray an attitude of strength while the Lord elevates those that walk softly and in humility. The problem in choosing leaders after the pattern of the world is that you end up with a leader that cannot deliver and you reject those leaders that have the blessings of God and all of His power behind them.
- Pilate tried to get the Jews to deal with it themselves; he tried to get the people to choose to release Jesus over Barabbas; and he tried to wash his hands of the entire matter.
What a person chooses to do with Christ is the most important question in the history of mankind?
