What Will You Do with My Son? (Matthew 27:22)

Pilate said to them, “ What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?”
They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!”
Matthew 27:22

God, the Father, asks this one question that everyone in the world must answer. “What will you do with My Son?”

Pilate did not want to answer the question for himself and attempted to shift the blame to the crowd, believing that he was absolving himself of the answer to the question.

The rich, young ruler who approached Jesus and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?” was unwilling to do what was asked of him, to completely obey Jesus and get rid of anything that hindered absolute devotion to Him.

Peter, after adamantly proclaiming his loyalty to Jesus by stating, “Even if all are made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble,” would deny that he knew Jesus, a mere few hours later.

Everyone in the world must answer this question. We may think we can artfully dodge the question; we may state that we accept Jesus as God but then turn aside when we consider the cost; or we may simply turn our back and deny Jesus.

God, the Father, asks, “What will you do with My Son?”

What will your answer be?

Love and respect the Lord; seek His will in your life.
