Everyone was gathered around Jesus as He began to speak, asking “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” Many of the others spoke up, calling out various titles and names…John the Baptist, Elijah, Jeremiah, a prophet. All fell silent as Peter spoke out. He said “You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God”. Jesus seemed pleased by Peter’s response.
Jesus looked thoughtful and then proceeded along the bumpy path, at the foot of Mount Hermon.
The others followed, in clusters of 2 or 3 and continued to talk about who the crowds thought Jesus was.
I notice that Jesus is walking alone
and I run up to walk in step with Him.
He stops and turns to me.
He calls me by name
and He says “Who do YOU
say I am?”
Looking deep into His Eyes, it seems like the world stops to listen
and I answer Him…
