“I find no fault in Him” #874

Pilate then went out again, and said to them, “Behold, I am bringing Him out to you, that you may know that I find no fault in Him.” (John 19:4, NKJV)

Repeatedly the Roman governor examined Jesus of Nazareth, even scourging Him (a most vicious, brutal torture). And, repeatedly Pilate concluded, “I find no fault in Him” (Jno. 18:38; 19:4, 6). Yet, Pilate finally yielded to the mob for political expediency, and hand Jesus over to be crucified. Jesus was thoroughly innocent of the charges made against Him. More impressive still, is that His entire life was without sin (1 Pet. 2:22). Jesus once said, “But because I tell you the truth, you do not believe Me. Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell you the truth, why do you not believe Me?” (Jno. 8:45-46). If His enemies could have convicted Him of sin they would not have sought out false witnesses to lie about Him (Matt. 26:59-61). Instead of obstinately refusing to believe Jesus, accept the testimony of truth that He is the Son of God. Honor Him with your full and faithful obedience. You are fighting a losing battle whenever you fight against Jesus and His truth.
