… that I am?
Jesus often asked His disciples questions,
… although He knew what they knew!
So why did Jesus ask His disciples questions?
Well, let’s have a look at one of those questions,
… and probably the most important question he ever asked them.
Now Jesus and His disciples went out to the towns of
Caesarea Philippi; and on the road He asked His disciples,
saying to them, “Who do men say that I am?”
So they answered, “John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah;
and others, one of the prophets.”
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?“
Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.”
Jesus was teaching His disciples that,
… it is not important what others say,
… but what is important is what you say.
Jesus wanted them to realize that,
God can only be as big in your life – as you see Him.
God can only do for you – what you believe He is able to do.
God can only bless you – if you are ready to receive from Him.
Our relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit,
… is either personal or there is no relationship!
It does not matter what others think,
… and whether they are right or wrong.
“But who do you say that I am?”
We all have to have a personal revelation of who Jesus is, otherwise
… how will He be real in our lives, and
… how will we be able to show Him to others!
What is not alive in us,
… we cannot live and we cannot share!
