“[Pilate] saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! But they cried out, Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King?” (John 19:14-15).
This history continually repeats itself.
When we sin we are essentially saying to our King, “Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him.” Christ is crucified afresh when we sin. To realize this reality of the immortal cross will prevent sin.
Let us BEHOLD OUR KING ETERNAL! Let us see our suffering Saviour with His crown of thorns hanging on the cross and not cause sin to rise up anymore into His dear heart of love.
