Whom Say Ye That I am?
He asked his disciples, saying , Whom do men say that I the Son of man am. And they said , Some say that thou art John the Baptist : some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? - Matthew 16:13-15
People have different perspectives on who God is. To some He is the Savior, He is exactly whom He says He is as revealed by His word. To others, He is Belzebuub (a devil), a scam, a self indulgent bigot, a nobody. All of these perspective do not really matter in the grand scheme of things. The perspective that matters emanates from your answer to this question today:
But whom say ye that I am?
Who do you think Jesus Christ is? What is your perception of Him? What does He mean to you? To me: He is my healer, my best friend, my savior, My Lord, my sufficiency, my ever present help, My confidant, ... in fact, He is my everything, my all in all. Your answer to this question, whatever that may be, will determine your future standing with God, as it did with Peter. So the question to you once again is:
Whom say ye that I am?
