What Shall I Do?

While Pilate was sitting on the judge’s seat, his wife sent him this message: “Don’t have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.”

 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus executed.

 “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?” asked the governor.

“Barabbas,” they answered.

 “What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called the Messiah?” Pilate asked.

They all answered, “Crucify him!”

 “Why? What crime has he committed?” asked Pilate.

But they shouted all the louder, “Crucify him!”

 When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I am innocent of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!”

 All the people answered, “His blood is on us and on our children!”

—Matthew 27:19-25

There is a question that every person must ask themselves.

It is simply this—

What shall I do, then, with Jesus called the Messiah?

Will we believe in Him and His gift of eternal life?

Or will we refuse to acknowledge Him as the Son of God, leaving His gift for us behind?
