Jesus in His teaching used the approach of answering a question with a question. He was very good at being able to do this. There are many questions that Jesus proposes that we must answer in our own life as well.
I am reminded of one important question that was ask as Jesus was standing before Pilate, Pilate said to them, ‘What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?'” (Matthew 27:22). Every person who has ever lived has to answer this same question. Jesus says, “He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him, the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day” (John 12:48). The vast majority of the world will reject Jesus (Matthew 7:13 -14) because they do not believe Him (John 8:24).
There are many people who reject Jesus because they are ashamed of Him. But Jesus says, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8:38).
There are people who say they believe in Jesus but will not obey Him. “Nevertheless even among the chief rulers many believed on Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God” (John 12:42-43). There are many people like this today.
Some brethren will follow Jesus for a while but will become unfaithful and reject Him. “From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. Then Jesus said to the twelve, ‘Do you also want to go away?’ But Simon Peter answered Him, ‘Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life’” (John 6:66-68).
To be pleasing to the Lord so we can go to Heaven we must “be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58). Today, what will you do with Jesus?
