Lent ‘11

Lent ’11

"Pilate said to them, ‘Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?" Matthew 27:22.

Almost 2,000 years ago-

– a man named Pilate asked the most important question in life.

Standing before him was an itinerant preacher.

There was nothing remarkable about His looks.

He had attracted a large following but few committed followers.

He had no wealth – not even a home of His own.

Yet He was the object of an unmitigated hatred from a mob.

Pilate asked, "What shall I do with this man?"

As the mob cried for His execution, the man, Jesus Christ, stood silently as Pilate cowardly sentenced Him to death on the cross.
The question Pilate asked is ultimately one all of us have to ask.

What shall I do with this man, Jesus?
He loves you, even when you could care less about Him.

He cared enough to pay the penalty for your sin.

What will you do with Jesus?

Your eternal destiny hangs in the balance by how you respond.
