Who Do You Say He Is?

“And Jesus went on with His disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way He asked His disciples, ‘Who do people say that I am?’ And they told Him, ‘John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.’ And He asked them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ Peter answered Him, ‘You are the Christ.’ And He strictly charged them to tell no one about Him.” ~ Mark 8:27‭-‬30

We know what our friends say who they believe Jesus is. We know what our family members, pastors, teachers, favorite celebrities, etc. say who they believe Jesus is, but who do you say He is? Sometimes we forget to take a second and really figure out who we say Jesus is. It’s easy to get caught up in what our parents believe or what our Church believes, and never really take the time to decide what we believe.

Jesus asked His disciples who they believed He was because that was important. He had them differentiate between the beliefs of the disciples and the beliefs of the people. The beliefs of your parents, friends, church, or anyone else in your life won’t be able to help you on Judgment Day. No one can stand for you. You can’t piggyback on another person’s belief. You have to decide who you believe Jesus is. Because at the end of the day it can only be your beliefs that you are judged by, not anyone else’s.

If no one else believes that Jesus is LORD in your life except for you, don’t be afraid, ashamed, or discouraged. Instead be as bold as Peter declaring that Jesus was, is, and always will be the Christ. Stand firm in your faith and Jesus will be with you as you do.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Decide Who You Say He Is.
