Sermon Text: 

John 18:33–37 (NIV)
33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” 34 “Is that your own idea,” Jesus asked, “or did others talk to you about me?” 35 “Am I a Jew?” Pilate replied. “Your own people and chief priests handed you over to me. What is it you have done?” 36 Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” 37 “You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

My dear friends in Christ,
“Who’s in charge?” When things are messed up, that’s one of the first things we holler. When the order comes back from the kitchen and nothing is right, we ask wait staff, “Who’s in charge?” We want to know who to blame, and who can fix things and make them right again.
