Who Do YOU Say That I Am?

“He (Jesus) said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’" (Matthew 16:13)

I am a mother who loves to hug my children, but hates to discipline them.

I am a woman who enjoys wearing cute shoes, but hates shopping for them.

I am a wife who enjoys dates with my husband, but hates paying for them.

I am a dental professional who loves keeping teeth healthy, but hates it when my patient loses one.

I am a writer who loves creating a story, but hates to edit it.
I am a friend who loves laughing together, but hates crying together.

I am a neighbor who loves to lend, but hates to borrow.

I am a puppy momma who loves taking Winston on walks, but hates taking him to the vet.

I am a daughter who loves her parents, but hates that they live out of town.

I am a Christian who loves pleasing the Lord and hates failing Him.

One day when Jesus and his disciples were walking, He asked them, "Who do men say that I am?"

Their responses were varied, "Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets."

Then He asked them another, more important question, "But who do you say that I am?" 

Peter, known for speaking first and thinking later, got it right the first time.  "You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God."

Jesus commended Peter for his answer. "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven."

Jesus asked and Peter answered the most important question that each of us will ever answer.  Not "Who does your mother, father, sister, brother, neighbor, pastor, grandmother, Sunday School teacher, lady-next-door think that I am?" 


"Who do you say that I am?"

If you cannot claim with Peter, that He is the Christ (YOUR Savior) then please visit the page to the right that asks "Do You Know God?"  and settle it today.  It will be the best decision you've ever made.  
 If you do have a relationship with God, take to heart what Peter admonished the believers in 1Peter 3:15, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;"  Be part of sharing the message of Christ to a lost world that desperately needs to know Him!

 "Blessed are you, ____________! (your name here),"
