Who Do You Say I Am?

“But, what about you,” he asked, “Who do you say I am?”
Matthew 16:15

This is the Most Important Question you will ever be asked here and through out eternity.

I hope you have answered this question as the Disciple Peter answered Jesus when he said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16).

Jesus’ question is very personal. It makes all the difference between heaven and hell for us.  Peter’s answer was in the singular form. He said THE Christ, THE Son of the living God.  THE means one and only Christ and one and only Son.

Jesus built His Church on the answer, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” The Gates of Hell cannot and will not overcome, overpower, prevail against, or win over this truth.

Do you need a litmus test for a church’s teachings or a belief system? Just ask “Who do you say Jesus is? If it does not include or agree with Peter’s answer --- run in the opposite direction.

Jesus said God, Himself, revealed this truth to Peter.

As a believer, always, always examine beliefs before supporting or becoming involved.

Don’t be misled. If Jesus is upheld as The Christ, The Son of The Living God, you will be among others who are part of His Church.

Thank You, Lord, for giving us a test to help us winnow out false teachings.
