“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 (NIV)
Who do you think Christ was? Who do you think He is today? It matters what you think. Was He just a good moral teacher? Was He someone who did miracles back then, but not today? Is He something aloof, an object of our ritualistic worship, but not someone I can really relate to? Peter told the real story. He started as a fisherman leaving his nets behind to follow this promising teacher. It wasn’t long before He was overwhelmed by all that was going on. Jesus had incredible teachings that impressed even His biggest skeptics. No one taught with such authority. But more than the teachings were the miracles. People were rising from the dead. Blind men were seeing. The lame were walking. And the demons, they were fleeing at the mention of His name. Then there was His moral authority. No one had ever loved others the way He did. No one had ever taught about love in the way He did. Peter couldn’t help it. He had to say, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Me? I say He is my Lord and Savior, ruler of my life, redeemer of my soul, and the lover of my very being. He is my dear Jesus. Who is He to you?
Dear Jesus, thank You for all You are. Thank You for Your love. Thank You for Your salvation. You truly are the Christ, the Son of the living God and I praise and worship You.
