Jesus and his disciples went to the villages near the town of Caesarea Philippi. As they were walking along, he asked them, “What do people say about me?” The disciples answered, “Some say you are John the Baptist or maybe Elijah. Others say you are one of the prophets.” Then Jesus asked them, “But who do you say I am?” “You are the Messiah!” Peter replied.
(Mark 8:27-29 CEV)
One time, I asked myself the same question Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do you say I am?” Like the disciples, I thought about all of the things that I had heard others say about Him, and formulated my own answer of who Jesus is to me.
Jesus wasn’t just a righteous, wise man,
Who worked miracles and wonders by His word and touch of hand.
Jesus wasn’t just a prophet, as some think,
and He was more than a physician who healed all the sick.
Jesus was God in human form,
Who raised the dead and calmed storms.
Jesus was the Messiah, who came to be
the Saviour and Redeemer of all who would believe.
We must all give an answer to Jesus’ question.
