What To Do About Jesus... A Personal Question


"Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called the Christ?" (Matt.27:22).

When Pilate asked the question in today's verse, it was just a bit personal, but mostly political. When the same question is asked today, it is a totally a personal one. Each person is responsible for his or her own decision and conduct... "For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due to him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad" (II Cor.5:10). No person can wash himself of this responsibility; In reality, not even Pilate could... The question asked by Pilate is one that has been looked at from every conceivable direction. As "the Son of Man" is one of them. That Jesus was the son of man is not disputed, as He actually posed that question to His disciples in Matt.16:13... "Who do people say the Son of Man is?" How about the viewing of Jesus as a historical character? Of earth's unnumbered billions, only a few are really historic... Of those few, none has influenced the world as Jesus has. No other ruler has ruled so long nor had so many loyal subjects. The words of the once powerful Napoleon (1769-1821) pay a noble tribute to Jesus; "But can you conceive of a dead man making conquests, with an army faithful and entirely devoted to His memory? My armies have forgotten me, even while living, as the Carthaginian army forgot Hannibal. Such is our power! A single battle lost crushes us, and adversity scatters our friends. Can you remember Caesar as the Emperor of the Roman senate, and from the depths of a mausoleum governing the empire, watching over the destinies of Rome? Such is the history of the world by the invasion of Christianity. Such is the power of the God of the Christians. Nations pass away, thrones crumble, but the church remains. Christ speaks, and at once generations become His by stricter, closer ties than those of blood. He lights up flames of a love which condemns self-love, which prevails over every other love." WOW! Jesus is the only Son of Man and the only historical figure that still is!.... We serve an amazing Savior... One that has been amazing for 2,000 years and counting. He was amazing yesterday, and will be amazing tomorrow... More about what to do with Jesus tomorrow....

Have a wonderful day... Do good and give God the credit.... Love mark Phil.4:11
