Pilate said, "Here is the man!" He let Jesus being flogged and mocked by putting on him a crown of thorns and a purple robe. He then led Jesus out and said, "Here is the man!" What did he really mean? Did he mean this, "Hi guys, see how I can do to him? Come on, he is nothing. Why do you guys make this such a big deal?"
Why did those Jews go mad crying out loudly to let Jesus to be crucified? What kind of man did they see in Jesus? What do you see in this dramatic moment?
Have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage of scripture we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"
What I heard from Jesus today is: Here is the man!
Pilate saw Jesus as a no body. Those Jews saw Jesus as the one they needed so desperately to eliminate. What do you see? Who is Jesus to you? How do you meet Jesus and see who Jesus is each day?
When Jesus gave me the topic today He reminds me of all those moments I have experienced of how His servants were being mocked and flogged. Just as a top Christian leader shared with quite a number of bishops a month ago. He said, "Well, you have to prepare for that mocking and flogging. It will come to you and you have to take it. I have to take it and I am taking it now!" It is such a glorious challenge for us to be flogged and mocked for Jesus! If you are being mocked and flogged because of Jesus now, congratulations! You will surely be richly blessed beyond your imagination! Every time I was being mocked and flogged Jesus raised me to a new level of ministry and a new relationship with Him!
Here is the man!
You are the man!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be prepared to face the challenge of being mocked and flogged because of you. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
