Our Responsibility

Pontius Pilate was the governor of Judaea; he ruled over forty provinces in the land of Judaea. Pilate was under the leadership of the royal leader Tiberius. The Sanhedrin was a group of Jewish judges that commanded the Jewish laws. At the Last Supper, Jesus shared his last meal with his friends the disciples before the time of his death. Simon Peter asked Jesus a very important question. He asked Jesus if he has the words of eternal life. He tells Jesus that He believes that He is the Christ the Son of the living God. Jesus begins to talk with his friends; he tells them that out of his chosen twelve disciples, one of them was a devil. Jesus tells Peter that He will deny him three times before the cock shall crow. Peter was warming himself by the fire because it was cold when Jesus told him that He was going to deny him. The Sanhedrin arrested Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. They brought him before Pilate because the Sanhedrin accused Jesus of speaking blasphemes.  The definition for blaspheme is the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God. (Merriam- Webster) Pilate had the life and death of Jesus in his hands. He found no fault in Jesus, but, he was scared. In the Word of God it records, ‘’When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him’’. (Matthew 27:19 KJV) Pontius Pilate didn’t want to condemn Jesus to death, but the crowds of people were screaming. Pontius Pilate washes his hands in front of the people, letting them know that this man Jesus’ blood was on their hands. By custom each year by the Passover, they would pardon a criminal. Pontius Pilate releases a prisoner by custom and released Barabbas because the crowds wanted Barabbas to be released. Pontius Pilate condemns Jesus to death. We all have been guilty of comparing our lives to someone else’s. It’s not so bad to compare ourselves to someone else. Our words can be a motivator, whether we realize it or not, whether you mean to or not. Our words can bring life, or it can cause someone to take their own life. While we all still alive: Let’s make our days count for something for the good of someone else. Stay Encouraged!

Our words can be a motivator, whether we realize it or not, whether you mean to or not. Our words can bring life. My life consists of working full-time at a pharmaceutical company and teaching Sunday school (Kindergarten class). My desire is to encourage others. My writings aren't fancy words, but they are from the Lord. So many people are hurting, and I want to help all I can while I am still alive. My passion is for elderly people and those who are shut-ins.
