Who do you say that I am?

You may have heard about the question that Jesus asked his disciples:

“Who do people say the Son of Man is?” (Matt 16:13)

The responses at the time were different.

They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” (Matt 16:14)

People had different ideas about who Jesus was. Most of them thought he was a spiritually influential person.

Jesus then asked his disciples a more personal question:

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” (Matt 16:15)

The answer was straightforward.

Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” (Matt 16:16)

It was the only right and spiritual answer.

"Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven." (Matt 16:17)

What about today?

If you ask people today who Jesus is, you also will get different answers. But in anyone's life, Jesus can become more than just a person from the Bible.

Jesus may become a Truth bringer:

"Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (Jn 4:16)

Jesus may become your Healer:

"It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners." (Mark 2:17)

Jesus may become your Saviour:

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

Blessed will you be, like Peter, when one day you can say about Jesus: “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God”.

Please let us know when that day has come for you.
