Ask anyone you know who goes to church or claims they believe in God, “Who is Jesus?” Some may call him a healer, a comforter, a way-maker and their own personal experience will define who He is to them. Jesus asked this question to His disciples once. He asked them about what they had heard about Him. He wanted to know the perception of him among others. They gave Him several examples that others were giving of His character.
Then Jesus asked Peter the question that spoke volumes about his relationship with the man he chose to follow. He asked Peter personally, “Who do YOU say that I am?” Peter responded, “You are the Son of God!” Jesus said that the Spirit revealed this to Peter and the truth was Peter would be the rock on which Jesus would build the church.
Has Jesus asked where He stands in your life? He will definitely ask you how others in your life are perceiving Him but the ending question will always be “Who do YOU say that I am?”. Remember, our relationship with Jesus is personal and at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what everyone else feels about Him as long as they know how you feel about Him. Do we make it clear that we know He is the Son of God? Of course, He is a healer and all of that but at the end of the day all that matters is that He is the Son of God and in Him there is no failure. Amen1
