Jesus often asked His disciples questions,
… not to find out what they knew,
… because Jesus 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 wanted His disciples to realize that,
… it is not important what others say,
… but what is important is what you say.
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 individually need a personal revelation of who Jesus is
… without which He is not real in our lives, and
… without which we will not be able to show Him to others!
What is not alive in us,
… we cannot live and we cannot share!
