He said to them, 'But who do you say that I am?' Simon Peter answered, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.'" -Matthew 16:15-16 (NASB)
If our words and actions are filled with God's love, they may set us apart from the world. Being set apart from the world may cause people to ask questions about our faith, about our love for and belief in Jesus and His sacrifice for our sins. As Jesus rides into our lives and the lives of those around us, we may be asked who He is and we should be ready to respond in a way that can bring everyone closer to God. The crowds in Jesus' day identified Him as a prophet, but we know more of the story. We know, much like Simon Peter, that Jesus is the one and only Son of God sent to die as a sacrifice for all of our sins so that we can be redeemed. Think about who Jesus is in the Bible and in your life.
Have a ready response when someone asks about Jesus!
Thank You for sending Jesus to die for me. Thank You for allowing me to know Him. Please help me to always have answers ready for any questions I may be asked about You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
