When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” -Matthew 16: 13-15
If one of your close friends or a family member was asked to honestly describe you, what do you think they would say?
That you’re generous? Kind? Forgiving? Would they say you’re caring, loving, and in control of your life?
Or would they say you’re stubborn, quick to anger, and extremely impatient?
Who are you? What are the traits that make you YOU?
Are you the person that you imagine that you are?
Now ask yourself, who do you say Jesus is?
Is He at the center of your life? Is He the reason for everything you say and do in your life?
Or is He a person that you pray to on Sunday, but don’t think much about the rest of the week?
Once you answer this question, all of the other answers will all fall into place.
