What then shall I do with Jesus?

"What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?" Pilate asked. …"

(Mat 27:22)

 

This is what Pontius Pilate asked the Jewish leaders when they brought Jesus before him. That is the question each person must answer. It is not a matter you can remain neutral about. To discount the claims of Jesus upon your life or pay no attention to the truth about Jesus is to turn your back on Jesus. If we accept Jesus, J. C. Ryle points out that we accept the following: “Jesus, the innocent, wore the crown of thorns so that we, the guilty, might wear a crown of glory. He was clothed with a robe of shame and contempt so that we might be clothed with His spotless righteousness and stand before God’s throne in robes of white. He bore contempt so that we might receive praise and glory on the last day. His claims the deity, royalty and control of our lives we accept the fullness of God’s gift to us.

 

If you have chosen Jesus as your saviour let us assure you of your decision. The Bible has the following assurances for those who have accepted Jesus as their Saviour:

 

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.

(Rom 8:1-2)

 

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

(Rom 8:38-39)

 

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

(1Jn 5:13)

 

What should do now?

 

  • Be baptised in water and the Holy Spirit.

  • Meet with other believers.

  • Read your Bible

  • Pray regularly

  • Tell others about Jesus

  • Live out the purpose God has for you
