John 19:1-6 NIV
[1] Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged. [2] The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe [3] and went up to him again and again, saying, “Hail, king of the Jews!” And they slapped him in the face. [4] Once more Pilate came out and said to the Jews gathered there, “Look, I am bringing him out to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against him.” [5] When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, Pilate said to them, “Here is the man!” [6] As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, “Crucify! Crucify!” But Pilate answered, “You take him and crucify him. As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him.”

No basis for a charge but crucify him anyway……God loves justice but suffered the most blatant and cruel injustice himself.

Lord Jesus, sinless, perfect, good shepherd, you laid down your life for us and we worship you. Help us to show your love and faithfulness in a world of injustice and confusion.
