THE "PONTIUS PILATE" IN OUR LIVES
By: Pauline Lee
(I can be reached at fsteps@tm.net.my. Unfortunately I do not subscribe to Faithwriter's Private Messaging service)

Are we at the crossroad of making a difficult decision? Do external circumstances like the opinions of others affect this decision?

"We share a common humanity with Pilate. At times we know the right and choose the wrong," - quoted from the Life Application Bible (NIV), taken from the short biography of Pontius Pilate. Many times we do this because we are fearful of rejection or disagreement. Are we a constant compromiser?

God has put some of us in positions of authority to make wise decisions and not to fool ourselves by bowing down to the ways of the world and do what is "common" to mankind. Sometimes our irresponsible action will lead to the release of evil or unrighteous acts, thus written in Mark 15:15 "Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them."

Let our decisions not be made in haste. Instead, we should practice prayer and fasting, relying on God to direct our ways so that we can draw wise conclusions that are not based on the thoughts of man alone.
