Finding Your True Self

Luke 9:18-20

“Who do the crowds say that I am?” They said in reply, “John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, ‘One of the ancient prophets has arisen.'” Then Jesus said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

Ah…that is the question! At some point (if it hasn’t happened already) you will hear Jesus ask that question directly to you: “Who do you say I am?” If Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life” as he said (John 14:6)…then what implications does that have on your life? If you are struggling…or if there seems to be something missing…a void inside…or if you are trying to make meaning of your life…look to Jesus’ words in the gospels for direction. The one thing Jesus asks of us is to follow him. That is what it means to be a “Christian.” Following him will require letting go of many things that are blocking you from being your true self. This will no doubt require making tough changes. But you will find a new peace in the midst of your struggle. It will be in the process of following Jesus that you will find yourself. And in each moment of that journey…you will experience ever deepening joy and peace.
