Lent Devotion, Day 43 of 44
15 Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.
Attempting to please the crowd can lead to abandon Jesus if we are not aware.
I am a people-pleaser by nature. I see situations where this can lead me into a ministry of pleasing people instead of pleasing God.
Lord, we want to love and serve you first. Lead us from the temptation to the neglect of our faith and values. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
