WHAT ARE WE TO DO WITH JESUS?

 
"The crowd was sharply divided over Him." —John 7:43
 

What are we to do with Jesus? (see Jn 11:47) Some people say He is the Prophet and the Messiah (Jn 7:40, 41). Over a billion people say He is our Savior, the Lord, the Son of God, God Himself. For two thousand years, people have said: "No man ever spoke like that before" (Jn 7:46), and "He told me everything I have ever done" (Jn 4:29, 39, our transl). What are we to do with Jesus? If we accept Him as the Lord and God, we must deny our very selves (Lk 9:23) and no longer live for ourselves but for Him (2 Cor 5:15).

Jesus taught: "Blest is the man who finds no stumbling block in Me" (Mt 11:6). Jesus is "a Stone Which the builders rejected That became a Cornerstone" (1 Pt 2:7). He is a Sign of contradiction for the rise and fall of many (Lk 2:34). We will either crucify Jesus and hold Him up to contempt (Heb 6:6), or we will be crucified with Him (Gal 2:19). If we choose Jesus and the cross, the lives we live will no longer be our own but Christ living in us (Gal 2:20). What are we to do with Jesus? What will He do with us?

 
Prayer: Jesus, my Lord, my God, my All! (see Jn 20:28)
Promise: "You, O Lord, showed me their doings." —Jer 11:18
Praise: Tim twisted his ankle falling from a ladder. His wife and children prayed, and it was healed overnight.
