Full text of The Greatest Question
A t the trial of Jesus, this question was asked by Pilate: “What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?” (Matthew 27:22).
Did it ever occur to you that this same question must be answered by you and me and every individual—including kings, presidents and rulers in every nation? No one is exempt!
We must answer it as individuals, because God has proven the whole world guilty— both Jew and Gentile. He has “proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin” (Romans 3:9). “That every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God” (Romans 3:19).
We must answer this question as individuals, because God the Father has provided in His Son a Saviour for those whom He has proven guilty. “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
At the cross, the Lord Jesus Christ met every just and holy claim God had against sin and the sinner: “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities….All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:5-6).
The work of redemption was finished at the cross. The great sin question was settled. It is now the SON question—what will you do with this Man who is called Christ?
There is no avoiding the question. It will be far better to plead guilty to the charges of sin that God holds against you and settle the matter right now.
God offers a pardon for every guilty sinner. You may meet His Son Jesus Christ right now as your Saviour or meet Him after death as your Judge. “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). “He [God] hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man whom He hath ordained” (Acts 17:31).
What Will You Do With Jesus?
The question is not asking, Have you been baptized? Have you joined a church? Are you following a certain doctrine or creed? Are you doing the best you can? Are you sincere?
No, the question before you is about a divine, living Person—the SON OF GOD. He righteously declares, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6).
Let’s make this very personal. Have you received the Lord Jesus Christ as your very own Saviour? Are you trusting in His shed blood and what He accomplished on the cross for your salvation? Or are you depending on your good works, morality, and on what you think you are doing for God? Based on your accomplishments, are you hoping that God will determine that you are a good enough person to be admitted into His home in heaven?
Which do you think God will accept— your good works and clean living? or Christ’s work for you and what He has accomplished for you? The all-important question is this: Have you accepted God’s remedy in providing a Saviour for lost and guilty sinners?
“As many as received Him [Christ], to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name” (John 1:12).
God will sooner or later bring every individual to an exact accounting of their treatment of His Son.
