Matthew 27:1–2 (ESV)
Jesus Delivered to Pilate
27 When morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death. 2 And
they bound him and led him away and delivered him over to Pilate the governor.
Christ is handed over to Pilate. When others betray you or falsely speak
evil against you, take counsel with Jesus. He knows your sorrows and has borne your sins. He will sustain you in the hour of trial.
I pray: Lord Jesus
Christ, let us die to sin and live to You. Lift up our hearts. Amen.
