Day 3: Messiah
Bible Verse: Matthew 16:16-17
Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.’ And Jesus answered him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven.
Bible Reading: Matthew 16:13-20 (Matt. 16:13-20)
What does this mean for me?
Have you ever claimed God. Seriously, who is God to you?
Is God a “friend”, is God absent, is God “love”, is God a listener? How do you describe God? Simon Peter, stood before the other disciples when they were claiming that Jesus Christ was a prophet, John the Baptist risen from the dead, or even Elijah. Peter claimed Jesus Christ to be the Messiah, Son of the living God. Son of the “LIVING” God, that means Son of a God who is active, present, always moving with us and not dead. God is alive. God is in each one of us through the Spirit.
Take time today to write how you would describe Jesus Christ if Christ looked to you like he did to Simon Peter and asked the same question, “Who do you say that I am?”
…Then when someone else asks you about your relationship with God you can start here in confident faith!
