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.
Jesus had come to save people from their sins. Jesus loved and served. The religious people hated Him so much that they chose a hardened criminal to go free instead of Jesus. They didn’t want the wicked man, but anyone would be better than Jesus.
They feared Him. He talked about God’s love. He spoke of salvation that He would purchase and not their works. Jesus had turned the religious world upside down. They wanted Him dead.
Who do you choose? Do you prefer this world and rebellion over a God that loves you? Do you want sin instead of salvation? Do you wish you over Him?
Who would you have go free? Will you allow Him to give you real freedom that this world has no way of offering? Trust Christ today.
