“Who do people say I am?” Jesus asked His disciples. That was an arbitrary question with an inconsequencial answer. The real question was when He asked them, “Who do you say that I am?” Peter got a 100% for his answer, but what about you? “Who do you say Jesus is? Many people tread lightly over that question. Oh, He was a great teacher or a really good man. New agers say He is one of many spirit guides that you can channel?!? In this world, everything is not always black and white, there are many gray areas, but not this! The answer is black or white, not a tint of gray anywhere. Jesus is either who He said He was … or not. There is no middle ground. He is the Son of God or a majorly deluded person. He can’t be a great teacher and all around good guy if He was going around lying to everyone.You either write Him off or accept Him gladly. There are so many choices available today from models of automobiles, different fast food options, hundreds of tv channels, to thousands of apps for your phone, isn’t it nice that there is only one choice to get in to heaven? You accept Jesus’ redeeming grace or you don’t. Really quite simple. One day you will be held responsible for your answer to who do you say Jesus is. The smart money is on He’s the Son of God and my Lord and Savior. If that’s not your response, you might want to look into why it isn’t?
