He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" ~Matthew 16:15
Jesus asked these words of the apostles and they responded that He was the Christ. A few weeks ago this was the topic of the sermon on a Saturday night at my dad’s church. This question has followed me for the last few weeks.
He is the Chris, the son of God. True, but as I’ve pondered this I wondered if these words go far enough. My desire is to know Him more and in a very personal way. So I began to ask myself each day this question. “Who do I say He is?”
- During moments of missing my mother that take my breath away He is my comfort.
- In threats of layoff in a tough economy He is my provider.
- When sickness of body or soul comes He is my healer.
- When I am fearful He is my peace.
