Jesus and his disciples came to the region of Caeserea Philippi and he asked them one of the most important questions that could be considered about himself. First, he wanted to know what people were saying about him.
And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
Then Jesus asks, “But who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:14-15)
Jesus also wants to know who we say that he is. The sort of relationship we can have with him is determined by how we answer.
Savior, Lord, Friend, Christ, Son of God, Teacher, Prophet. How do you answer when Jesus asks you “Who do you say that I am?” The way in which you answer can evolve. At any rate, how you respond to him…
Can change your life.
