The Bible says:
“When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?”
Matthew 16:13 KJV
That’s a good question. It’s been asked before. And yet we seldom take the answer to it seriously.
Whom do men say I am??
That’s an important ???
There’s been many who have denied that He is the King of Glory; some say He ‘s just a man… Some have argued that he is just a good teacher.
And just as He did with the disciples that day it came to the point where he made the question personal…
What do you think?? Can you just feel how those disciples felt as they heard that question from the lips of the One They had come to know so intimently .
And did you know, it’s not important what others think about Jesus…. Here’s the important ???
Who is He…. To you???
Is He Lord? Savior? Soon coming KING ?
Master… Savior?? Any or all the above??? To You?
Or is He nothing? Nothing at all ?
What roll does He play in your heart and life?
Well… Why do you suppose That Jesus asked them that ???
Is He starving for attention? Does he have a big ego problem? Why would He ask that ??? And Does it really matter? Does it?
Well…How long is eternity?
It’s a long long long time.
Where will you spend eternity? That depends on you answer to the first question.
You see if Jesus is anything short of who he says he is…
If He is anything but the Son Of The Living God, then our future is bleak.
Paul put it like this:
“If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”
1 Corinthians 15:19 KJV
You see everything you and I hold dear and love so everything that brings a smile to our face every thing that makes us feel alive hinges on that first question….
“Whom do you say that I am”?
That’s an important question.
The most important question you’ll ever get.
Well? What is your answer?
