Who do you say

Posted on Posted in Potential, Relationship

                                                            … 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.”
      Mark 8:27-29

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!
