DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 8:1-9:44; Ezekiel 11:1-25; John 3:22-36

Pilate said to them, “Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” Matthew 27:22

Asked so long ago, this is still one of the greatest questions we can ask ourselves. Here Pontius Pilate asked the question of the unruly crowd as the Lord stood before him. The crowd replied, “Let him be crucified!” Pilate didn’t really know what to do, but swayed by the crowd he rejected Christ. How sad! Even today many still reject the Lord, but what of you? Ask yourself this question, “What shall I do with Jesus?” May you receive and accept Him today. —John M. Clegg

O soul, so sad and weary, that sweet voice speaks to thee:
Then what will you do with Jesus? Oh, what shall the answer be?
