I’ve been thinking about the question Jesus posed to His disciples in Matthew 16:15: “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
Who do I say Jesus is, not once, but, everyday? Is He the Messiah, Son of God, savior, liberator, and loving friend? Too often I mentally reduce Him to a mini me — selfish, unforgiving, fickle, sometimes present, sometimes not. During the remainder of Lent, I want to listen for His voice and stand in His presence — all that He is and all that I am not.
