Confession of Guilt--Brings Forgiveness

The chief priests accused him of many things. 4 So again Pilate asked him, “Aren’t you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of.” But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed. Mark 15:4-5

Pilate was most certainly amazed. Those accused of crimes always confessed innocence to avoid punishment– but Jesus chose not to. This was more than a choice for Jesus. It was his plan! He accepted guilt where he was innocent so he might declare me to innocent where I am guilty. I need to learn from him. Rather than plead my innocence, I need to give my full confession. I lay my guilt out there so I might hear Jesus utter those sweet words, “I forgive you.” May we learn to confess our guilt to avoid punishment. Thank you Jesus, for taking my place on the cross. AMEN.
