Indeed. Pilate asked this question initially. The initial response given him, “Let Him be crucified!” We shake our heads in incredulity! We shake our heads in sadness. We shake our heads in anguish. “How stupid,” we quickly say. “What arrogance,” we are just as quick to mutter. Yet a quick survey of my life, of yours…would tell what story?

Before answering too blithely or quickly…peruse the front page of your local paper. Watch a 30 minute news broadcast. What about your TV listings? What is happening in our world? Your neighborhood? Your church?
Jesus said to them, “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15)
What difference is Jesus, who is called Christ making in my life today? In yours?
