“Then he asked them, ‘But who do you say I am?”’
Matthew 16:15 (NLT)
Who do you think Jesus is? Jesus asked this crucial question to His disciples. It is a question that we too must answer. The answer is life changing. What we think about God helps define the relationship we have with Him. If we believe God is distant and aloof, we will find our self distant from Him. If God is harsh and unpredictable, then we will have a relationship based on fear and anxiety. But what if God is exactly the way Jesus exhibited Him? What if the Prodigal’s father was a true representative of the forgiveness and love of God? What if all that Paul writes about our God of faithfulness, mercy and grace is true? Couldn’t that change our life if we really believed it? Yes, it would. Jesus is indeed God in the flesh. His love, sacrifice and tender mercy toward those in need is the exact image of His Father. Today, come to the God that Jesus revealed. Acknowledge that He is the loving, caring, holy, just, faithful, almighty, all knowing and all powerful God and live for Him.
Father, help me to know You as You really are. Reveal Yourself to me so I can love, worship and honor You with my life. Forgive me for all my misconceptions. Help me to know You in all Your beauty, love and holiness.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
I know who Jesus is
Relax and begin to think of everything you know about Jesus. Think of His miracles. Consider His teachings. Visualize Him being full of love and compassion, just like the Bible teaches. Think of all the good He did to those around Him. See Him dying on the Cross for you. Picture His glorious resurrection. This is Jesus, our Savior and our God. Rejoice in Him.
