Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 322

  1. “I have the power…” (John 19:10).

Pilate’s frustration with a silent Jesus boils over into an incredible but true interchange. The Roman governor threatens with his power to “free you or crucify you” and Jesus responds by saying that such power comes from above. Both are true. In fact, every one of us has been given a similar power. God, in wisdom and by grace, has given each of the multiplied billions of His creation the choice of what to do with Jesus. That power from above establishes and sets the course for our lives. We have been given this remarkable opportunity of self-determination and with it can either embrace or reject God himself. So go ahead, Pilate, make your call. We all have to.
