They Should Have Cried, "Holy"!
When they saw him, the leading priests and Temple guards began shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”
“Take him yourselves and crucify him,” Pilate said. “I find him not guilty.”
John 19:6 NLT
They should have cried, “Holy”, but instead they cried, “Crucify!”
These are the words in a song that our choir is practicing for the Easter Musical. It is a beautiful song with a powerful message.
It’s new to me, but since we began singing it, the words keep running in my head. I wake up in the morning hearing the words in my mind and spirit.
Are we, today, still crying, “Crucify him”, or do we recognize Jesus as “Holy, the Son of God”?
I know… We don’t hear the words, “Crucify him”, but do the actions of many indicate that He is dead to them?
If Jesus were on trial today, standing before us, would you be one crying, “Crucify him… let him die.”
Or would you be falling before Him crying, “Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!”
Please take the time to listen to this video and let its message speak to you.
I pray that you have a beautiful Easter as you remember the sacrifice Jesus became for us, giving us the gift of eternal life!
Love and Prayers,
