Who Do I Say He Is?

17 Jul

In a Gallup Poll conducted several years ago. Americans were asked who they thought Jesus was. Of those interviewed 70% said that he was not just another man; of those 42% stated that He was God; 27% believed He was only Human but was divinely called.

In the Gospels it was recorded that Jesus asked His Disciples that same question, “Who do you say  that I am?” and just like the recent Poll several responses came back from them but Peter said that He was the Christ son of God. In the book of Revelation Paul exiled on the isle of Patmos also had an encounter with someone but the encounter was with a someone that He recognized as Jesus whom he had walked with but the appearance of Jesus this time was different Jesus’s face shown like the sun and hair was white as snow. The Bible tells of His appearance in the book of revelation and it is one of a King in all His Glory that Honor is to be given.

So now I must ask myself the same question on a daily basis, “Who do I say He is?” If ignore a response today and live for myself and deny Jesus it will matter to no one except me but when I respond He is Jesus my Lord and Savior soon and coming King it changes my life today and forever as well as it will impact the lives of my family and friends and even people whom I come into contact with today.

I start a new job on Mon 7/19 and I ask you to be praying for me that as I do this new work that people would not see me but something inside of me that they desire and that I would be bold enough to share my Jesus with them.

One of the greatest tragedies in this life would be that we don’t get asked this question before we pass on from life. I can guarantee that when we pass on the question will be asked again but it will be asked like this,”Whom did you say that I was?” only at this point we will be on our knees in front of a risen King the King of glory!

    I too enjoy your writing Cleve and in the past was an avid daily writer. You know I like to jot down my thoughts but also like you I wish to ask the question to others so they too may evaluate their own walk with Jesus
    Thank you for your inspiring words and your true love of your neighbors, it is so appreciated. My love to you, my brother in Christ.
