Introduction: The people of the greatest drama of all time are the people of Christís Passion. In the lives of the women, the disciples, the soldiers, Herod, and Pilate, to name a few, we must admit to seeing ourselves. We see our faith, our doubts, our hopelessness, and our selfishness among many other traits that we know to be ours on any given day. The following poem presents Pilate as he struggles with the most important decision he will ever make.
Pilate Before the Christ
Pilate, how pathetic,
as you bend your will to sin,
a pleaser of the people,
giving in to every whim.
Priests hold your feet to fire
as you gaze at Godís own Son.
Do you know your name lives on here
when your life on earth is done?
Look upon the face of Jesus.
See beyond the surging crowd.
Shut out the screaming voices,
so demanding, coarse, and loud.
Still your questions, and step closer
to the One who stands accused.
Feel the power of His Presence.
Will you ĎI AMí refuse?
O Pilate, can your palace walls
protect you from yourself?
Shall your eternal soul be saved
by earthly fame and wealth?
Before you dip your hands into
delusionís soothing bowl,
consider now the price youíll payó
the losing of your soul!
