The disciples told Him that some were saying He was John the Baptist, or Elijah, maybe Jeremiah or one of the other prophets. (v.14) What answers might He hear today? Well, if you spend any time on social media, you know the list is mighty long! And mighty wrong if we don’t agree with Simon Peter: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (v.16)
What does that answer mean to you? Jesus declared it to be the correct response. Are you in agreement with Jesus or no? Here is a challenge for you – reading the entire Bible, the oracles of God is a tall order. So with a humble heart and a searching mind why not concentrate on the book of Romans? This key portion of scripture is a mini-New Testament.
You see, Jesus inevitably asks each one of us, THE Question (really with life and death hanging in the balance), “But who do YOU say that I am?” (v.15) After reading God’s Word, I came to believe as Simon Peter did. Why not go for it?
