He will make it right
Matthew Chapter 27 talks about Jesus and his encounter with Pontius Pilate. Jesus had already been found guilty by the chief priests and was now going before Pilate. Jesus knew what the outcome was going to be, he knew his life would be taken.
I can’t help but think about how much faith it must have taken for Jesus to stand his ground before Pilate.
Matthew 27:11-14 (NIV)
11 Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?”
“You have said so,” Jesus replied.
12 When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer. 13 Then Pilate asked him, “Don’t you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?” 14 But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge—to the great amazement of the governor.
As I read this, words from a song by Lauren Daigle came to mind. “I will stand my ground where hope can be found” Jesus was standing before Pilate and could have easily said he was not the king of Jews and been spared the pain he was about to endure.
Jesus instead stood his ground and accepted his fate. Jesus loves all of us and he knew there was hope for us. Jesus knew God loved him and he loves us. Jesus had hope for us.
John 17:24-26 (NIV)
24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you[a] known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
It was wrong for the high priests to accuse Jesus of blasphemy. God heard the cries of Jesus. God took a wrong and made it right. He allowed Jesus to make the sacrifice that saved us all.
If we stand our ground and put all our faith in our savior Jesus Christ, he will make it right
John 3:16 (NIV)
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
