“Two Choices (from Grace for the Moment” by Max Lucado)
“What should I do with Jesus, the one called the Christ?” Matthew 27:22
Pilate is correct in his question. “What should I do with Jesus, the one called the Christ?”
Perhaps you, like Pilate, are curious about this one called Jesus.
What do you do with a man who claims to be God, yet hates religion?
What do you do with a man who calls himself the Savior, yet condemns systems?
What do you do with a man who knows the place and time of his death, yet goes there anyway? …
You have two choices.
You can reject him. That is an option. You can, as have many, decide that the idea of God’s becoming a carpenter is too bizarre—and walk away.
Or you can accept him. You can journey with him. You can listen for his voice amid the hundreds of voices and follow him.”
There are only two choices and the proverbial clock is ticking.
