"And so Pilate, willing to content the people." There we get the spring of his conduct. Its fearful enormity does not at first sight appear. It would seem that he could not help it. The people were bent on their purpose. Very possibly; but if they are bent on crucifying, why should I lend myself to aid them? I might not be able to prevent it, but at any rate I could keep myself from being a party to it. Oh, there is need, in this day, of individual attachment to the Person of the Son—need of weighing the worth of Jesus, and deciding to have Him or the world.
