He (Jesus) said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:15-16
Perhaps you have answered the following question when you first began your Christian journey however long ago, but let's consider the question again today: who is Jesus to you? It is how we answer that question that will determine the way we think, act, and interact. Jesus poses the same question to his Disciples in Sunday's scripture reading, and ultimately what he is interested in is your personal response to the question. Is he someone from a storybook? An inspirational figure from the past? Or someone who matters to you? Let us ponder this matter as we revisit the story of Jesus and his disciples when they discussed who Jesus is.
