WHAT THINK YE OF CHRIST

MATT. 22:41-46

THERE ARE MANY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS CONFRONTING THE MAN OF TODAY. LET’S THINK OF SOME OF THEM.

[1] WHERE SHALL I LIVE?

[2] IN WHAT CITY OR COUNTRY?

[3] IN THE NORTH ,SOUTH, EAST, OR WEST?

[4]WHAT CAREER SHALL I SELECT, WHAT PROFESSION MUST BE MINE?

[5] WHOM SHALL I MARRY?

[6] HOW CAN I BEST REAR MY CHILDREN?

THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE SCORES OF QUESTIONS FOR MEN TO ANSWER TODAY. BUT THERE IS ONE GREAT , IMPORTANT, MEANINGFUL UNIVERSAL QUESTION FACING EVERY MAN, WOMAN, BOY AND GIRL IN THE WORLD. IT IS ASKED BY JESUS HIMSELF AND EVERY MAN MUST ANSWER IT. HERE IT IS

WHAT THINK YE OF CHRIST?

YOU ASK A FRIEND,’ WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PRESIDENT OR GOVERNOR, OR THE MAJOR? BUT THESE ARE INSIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS COMPARED TO THE GREAT QUESTION. WHAT THINK YE OF CHRIST?

IF YOU THINIK WELL OF HIM GET ON HIS SIDE, GIVE YOUR LIFE TO HIM, SERVE HIM WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART. FOLLOW HIM, BE FAITHFUL TO HIM UNTO DEATH. HE IS GOD’S SON, HE LOVED YOU, HE DIED FOR YOU. HE WANTS THE BEST FOR YOU.

NOW, LET’S SEE WHAT THIS QUESTION DOESN’T MEAN

THE QUESTION IS NOT WHAT THINK YE OF THE CHURCH? OFTEN WHEN WE TRY TO CONFRONT MAN WITH THE CLAIMS OF CHRIST; THEY BEGIN TO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK IS WRONG WITH THE CHURCH. BUT THAT IS NOT THE QUESTION. WE KNOW THAT THE CHURCH IS NOT PERFECT.

IT IS COMPOSED OF HUMAN BEINGS AND THEREFORE CAN NEVER BE PERFECT ON THIS SIDE OF GLORY. BUT IT IS STILL THE GREATEST INSTITUTION ON EARTH. CIVILAZATION WOULD PERISH WITHOUT IT’S INFLUENCE. ALL THAT IS GOOD IN OUR NATION’S LIFE COMES FROM IT. OUR SCHOOLS, OUR HOSPITALS AND CHILDREN HOMES GREW OUT OF THE CHURCH.

THE QUESTION IS NOT, WHAT THINK YE OF HIS RESENENTIVES. OFTEN WHEN AN UNSAVED PERSON IS CONFRONTED WITH THE MATTER OF HIS RELATIONSHIP TO GOD, HE POINTS TO SOME CHRISTIAN WHO IS NOT WHAT HE OUGHT TO BE AND GIVES THAT MAN’S LIFE AS AN EXCUSE FOR HIS OUR INDIFFEERENCE TO CHRIST.

WE KNOW THAT SOME OF CHRIST REPRESENTATIVES LIVE SHABBY LIVES, BUT THAT IS NOT THE QUESTION. WE ARE NOT TO JUDGE CHRIST BY HIS FOLLOWERS.

THE QUESTION IS NOT WHAT THINK YE OF THE DOCTRINES OF THE CHURCH? A MAN SAYS ,’I DON’T BELIEVE IN BAPTISM, BUT WHAT DOES THAT MATTER IF HE ISN’T SAVED?

AND ANOTHER SAYS,’ I DON’T BELIEVE IN THE LORD’S SUPPER, BUT WHAT DOES THAT MATTER IF HE IS ON HIS WAY TO HELL?

ANOTHER MAN WILL SAY,’ I DON’T BELIEVE IN YOUR FORM OF CHURCH GOVERNMENT, BUT WHAT DOES THAT MATTER IF SATAN IS GOVERNING HIS LIFE? HE HAS NO TIME TO ARGUE ABOUT THE DOCTRINES OF THE CHURCH. IT’S TIME FOR HIM TO CRY OUT TO CHRIST FOR SALVATION.

NOW LET’S HEAR FOR CHRIST’S ENEMIES.

WE ASK THE PHARISEES, WHAT THINK YE OF CHRIST? THEY ANSWER,’ THIS MAN RECEIVES SINNERS. THAT’S WHY HE CAME INTO THE WORLD. THAT’S WHY HE LOVED US. THANK GOD HE DOES RECEIVE SINNERS. IF HE DIDN’T, WHERE WOULD YOU AND I BE ?

ON THE CROSS THEY SAID HE SAVED OTHERS, HIMSELF HE CANNOT SAVE. IT IS TRUE HE COULD NOT SAVE HIMSELF AND SAVE US ALSO. HE HAD TO GIVE HIMSELF TO SAVE US.

WE ASK THE CHIEF PRIEST, WHAT THINK YE OF CHRIST? HE SAYS,’ HE IS THE SON OF GOD.
