“But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”- Matthew 16:15-16
At some point each and every one of us will have to answer the question: who is Jesus to you? Peter had just finished letting Jesus know what others were saying but Jesus did not care what others thought; he wanted to know what Peter thought. Many people are trying to live their Christian life on the experiences of others. It's clear that Jesus wanted each of us to have our own encounter...to develop our own relationship with Him. When your finances are low...who do you say He is? When your spouse walks out on you...who do you say He is? When your boss says the company is letting you go...who do you say that He is? It all comes down to your answer of that question. My prayer today is that you will be able to boldly profess, as Peter did, you are the Christ, the Son of the Living God!
