Who Do You Say?

   Who is Jesus?  Who do you say?

 

   While traveling along the way, Jesus asked his disciples, "Who do people say that I am?"  Their response was clear and honest. "Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the   prophets."  Following their answer, Jesus asks the more pointed question, "But who do you say that I am?"

 

   This is the question we must all answer.  The Bible clearly explains who Jesus is:  Jesus is Lord of Lords and King of Kings; he is our Savior; he is the Prince of Peace; he is the Son of God who willingly gave his life as the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for our sins only, but for the sins of the whole world; it is Jesus who brings about our victory; in him we live and move and have our being.

 

   We must seek to worship God and Christ with all our heart.  John, in his gospel, says that Jesus is the very word of God.  We must seek to follow God’s word to the best of our ability.  Knowing that Jesus has spoken, that he has revealed God to us, it should be our aim to acknowledge him as the Lord of our lives.  Jesus must be the heart of it all.

 

   Throughout the centuries, Jesus has been 

characterized as an ascetic, the Pale Galilean, the teacher of common sense, the founder of modern business, a capitalist, a socialist, and as a great revolutionary and freedom fighter.  We must resist the temptation to mold and shape Jesus into who we want him to be.  We must allow him to mold and shape us into who he wants us to be.  But it all comes down to that question. 

 

   Who is Jesus?  Who do you say?
