Read Mark 15:1-15. Do you ever despair over our political class? There sometimes seems to be culture of abusing power, whether it’s a case of bare faced lying and hoping to get away with it, or potential fraud, nepotism, bullying or a number of any other problems we are faced with on our television screens and in our newspapers.
Pontius Pilate is alive and well it seems! He underpays his staff and subjects them to poverty. He covers up his crimes and those of his cronies. He deliberately spreads lies and disinformation.
People like Pontius Pilate think they are in control. But they are not. Their power is a sham. One day they will be judged for the way they used and abused power by the One whose power raised Jesus from the dead.
By his silence, Jesus made it clear to Pilate that he was not in control. Real power is found only in trusting ourselves to his power. Jesus is the One who holds creation in the palm of his hand. He was the only One with power to bring about God’s plan of salvation. Are you ready to give him the power over your own life?
