WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH THIS JESUS?
“Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?”” Mathew 27:22
Praise be to God for giving us another beautiful day full of His blessings.
From yesterday we started looking at one of the voices that influenced Pilate in the decision to crucify Jesus. The people desired to destroy Jesus. They cried for Barabbas to be set free but Jesus to be crucified. Although Pilate knew Jesus was innocent, he succumbed to the will of the people.
Today we will look at the voice of position and possession. The people threatened to report Pilate to Caesar. Due to Pilate’s relationship with and the benefits he got from the powerful Caesar, he denied Jesus. Be careful you don’t betray Jesus because of your wealth, position, beauty, intelligence, family background or friends.
“From then on Pilate sought to release Him, but the Jews cried out, saying, “If you let this Man go, you are not Caesar’s friend. Whoever makes himself a king speaks against Caesar.”John 19:12
Stand for Jesus at all times. In all your endeavours put Jesus first. Do not consider anything around you bigger than Jesus. Anything you desire above Jesus, you have crucified Him.
Today, you’re being asked what you’ll do with this Jesus (betray him or defend him), but the next time it would be Jesus on his throne asking what He’ll do with you, a sinner.
Pray with me;
Heavenly Father, I implore your mercies. Grant me the grace to walk in the fear of God. Help me to put You first in my decisions. May the Holy Spirit strengthen me to walk right with You in Jesus’ name.
