In our passage for today, we see both the chief priests and Pilate motivated by different forms of the fear of man. As we see how this fear of man leads to sin, I want us to look inward at our own struggles in this area. See how this, along with all our sin, has sent Jesus to the cross. But rejoice in knowing that there is forgiveness in Christ because he went to the cross.
