THE GREATEST QUESTION IN THE WORLD
This question was asked by Pilate, and comes to you, reader, with all its force and reality.
"Pilate saith unto them: 'What shall I do then with Jesus, which is called Christ?'"
 
Did it ever occur to you that this question must be answered by every individual--including
kings, rulers and nations?
 
We must answer it as individuals, because God has proved the whole world guilty--both Jew
and Gentile (Rom. 3:9). "That every mouth may be stopped and all the world may become guilty
before God." Rom. 3: 19.
 
We must answer this question as individuals, because the Father has provided in His Son a
Saviour for those whom he has proved guilty. "For 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.
 
The Lord Jesus Christ at the cross 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." Isa. 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 getting away from this. You had better plead guilty to the charges that are against
you and have this matter settled.
 
There is pardon for the guilty. You may meet Christ 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." Heb. 9: 27.

He (God) has appointed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness, BY that Man whom He hath ordained.  Acts 17:31
 

The above question does not mean, have you been baptized? Have you joined the church? Are
you doing the best you can? Are you sincere? Have you accepted a certain doctrine or creed?
 
No, it is a Divine Living Person, the SON OF GOD that is before you. The One Who said, "I
am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh unto the Father but my Me." John 14: 6.
 
Reader, have you received the Lord Jesus Christ as your own personal Saviour? Are you
trusting in His shed BLOOD and work on the cross ALONE for salvation? Or are you depending
on what you are in yourself. Are you trusting in your so-called good works, morality, and on
what you think you are doing for God?
