Matthew 16:15-16


Matthew 16:15-16
He said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ Simon Peter answered and said, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God’

Jerusalem was abuzz with the question: “Who is this?” Who was this humble man riding on a donkey amid a cheering crowd?

Some waved Him off; it’s just the son of Joseph and Mary. Others shrugged; He is just another prophet from Galilee. Still others saw Him as their rebel hero arriving to overthrow their oppressors.

Earlier, when Jesus posed this question to the disciples, Peter did not mince words: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” How do we respond when others sense the Spirit of God in us and inquire, “Who is this?”

Do we make our faith something bland and boring? Do we portray Him as something they can ignore or do we proclaim Him in a way that they can never forget?

Because He is risen, we are alive. When we did not deserve it, He forgave us and showed us mercy. When we were alone, He called us His friends. When we were weak, He was strong. When we were abandoned, He showed Himself faithful and true. When we were in trouble, He was there beside us. There is no one like Him.

Who do you say that He is?

Blessing:

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you always have a reason for the Hope that is inside of you! He is our Savior and Strength, our Light and Living Water, our Rock and Refuge, our Counselor and soon-coming King!
