What will you do with Jesus?

The people were plotting as to how to put Jesus to death. Judas had returned the blood money...30 pieces of silver, to the chief priests and elders. With it they purchased the potter's field, which would be known even to the present day, as the "Field of Blood."

Jesus stood before the governor, Pilate, while the people hurled accusations against Him. Pilate asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" Jesus replied, "It is as you say."

It was the time of the feast, and the governor was allowed to release one prisoner. He asked the people, who will it be? Jesus or Barabbas? His wife gave him warning not to harm Jesus in any way. She had had a dream concerning him. The chief priests and elders persuaded the crowd to cry out for Barabbas to be released.

The pivotal question of the hour was, "What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?" It was a question asked of the people of that day and it is a question asked of each of us today.

What will you do with Jesus who is called the Christ? If you haven't responded to Him as yet, please receive Him as Lord of your life today. One day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!
