KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 27:22 KJV” Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.”
We continue with the trial of Jesus in Pilate’ palace. PILATE realised there was no sin with Jesus. He asked who would choose, Barabbas or Jesus? They shouted give us Barabbas and crucify Jesus. The name Jesus means Jehovah is saviour. He is called the Christ, or the anointed one. Jesus is God in the flesh Jesus is the word of God, and He is God (John 1:1). These people rejected Him because they did not know who he was. They were envious of Him, because they put Him in the same class as themselves.
Today, I ask you, what are you doing with Jesus? Everything about you would begin to change according to what you do with Jesus. Even if you are a Christian your life would either be promoted or demoted depending on what you do with Jesus.1 Corinth 2:9, reveals that eyes have not seen nor ear head, neither has it entered into the heart of man, what God has prepared for those who love Him. Daniel writes that those who know their God shall wax strong and do exploits. Dan 11:32. Jesus is the embodiment of absolute perfection. He represents perfect freedom. He is the answer to every question of mankind. Jesus gives power for a victorious life. What are you doing with Jesus? It is very unfortunate to find Christians who seek to use Jesus to get what they want yet they have no special place for the master. Do not rob yourself of true reality by placing Jesus at second place.
If you are not a born-again child of God then the one you need to rule your affairs is Jesus. Jesus in your life is peace, healing, wisdom, protection and whatever good thing you may think about. If you are sick Jesus can heal you. Jesus has proved a faithful and powerful master who is worth depending on. In the light of all these, why would any man reject such a powerful being.? People reject Jesus because they have no knowledge of him. How can one know Him? Dear one, Jesus can show Himself alive to you. All you need is to ask Him to show Himself to you. Stop fighting and challenging whether He is real or not. Be sincere and just ask Him to show Himself to you.
