But What About You?
Luke 9


Jesus got alone with His disciples after a day full of ministering and serving. After Jesus spoke to His Father in prayer, He began to question His followers and prod their hearts, "Who do the multitudes say that I am?" If you were to poll a similar crowd today you would get similar answers. Just like today, Jesus, was known more often by things that He did:

  • A healer of the sick and crippled
  • A wise teacher and theologian
  • A "nice person"
  • A good example
  • A close friend
  • A good luck charm
  • A martyr
  • A prophet foretold or a former prophet who'd come alive again
  • John the Baptist (who was actually Jesus' cousin)

"But who do you say that I am?" Jesus asked.

Peter, without hesitancy, answered Him, "The Christ of God."

Above all, despite all, Peter saw Jesus as the promised Messiah and the Son of the Most High God. He was sure of Jesus' identity, as well as Jesus' place in his own life. What about you? Who do you say that Jesus is? Is He merely one of those things in the list above, or a combination of several? Or is He the total, end-all, be-all in your life? Is He the risen Savior who has set you free from sin? Is He The King of your heart, and the reigning Ruler of your life? Romans 10:9-10 says, That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Who do confess that He is?
