Mark 8:29 says” And he said unto them, But who say you that I am? And Peter answered and said unto him, You are the Christ.
Why did Christ ask them who they say I am and who do you say I am? Jesus already know their answers and yet He still asked each of them. Look at how Peter responded to the question. Peter’s Confession, They told Him, saying, “John the Baptist; and others say Elijah; but others, one of the prophets.” And He continued by questioning them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.”
Today you and I have to answer this same question, Who do men say He is but more important is “who do you say He is? In our society there are people who don’t know who Jesus is, some will respond like some of the disciples did they will say He is Elijah some will say He is not the Christ while some have no idea who He is. When Jesus comes to you and ask you who I am who will you say? When men ask you who He is what will you say?
Jesus response to Peter, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
Have a blessed Sunday, I pray while you are in church today that you receive the word and that the word falls on good soil. What did your pastor speak about today? Would love to hear about it. And I will do the same when we get home from church.
