WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH THIS JESUS
(Dealing with Pride and Self Importance)
“Then Pilate said to Him, “Are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have the power to crucify You, and power to release You?” (John 19:10 -11)
Glory to God for another beautiful day; it has been a blessed week.
In the last few days, we took a dive into the crucifixion of Jesus Christ from Mathew 27:22.
Although Pilate knew Jesus was innocent he allowed the will of the people to prevail over his judgement. Pilate was influenced by certain strange voices and today we shall conclude with the voice of pride and self-importance. Pilate bluffed Jesus and told him he had the power to crucify or save him. But Jesus replied unless God gives him the power, he has nothing.
Many of us, in our relationship with God, allow pride and self-importance to control us. We consider our personal achievements, positions, reputation, academic laurels and societal positions bigger than God or the church. These do hinder us in rendering our worship to God. We must come to the understanding that our success is given to us by God and hence He is bigger than material things.
“A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honour.”
Do not turn your back on Jesus because of pride. This is a betrayal of Him and failure to recognise His death on the cross to secure your eternal life.
Today, you are being asked what you will do with this Jesus; betray Him or defend Him? The next time it would be Jesus on His throne asking what He would do with you a sinner.
Pray with me:
My Heavenly Father, I pray for your forgiveness. May Your renewed mercies find me this morning. I receive the grace to walk in humility and the fear of God in the name of Jesus Christ.
