Matthew 16:15

“But who do you say that I am?”

+++

Jesus is asking the same question to you and me that he asked his followers when he walked the earth.

It can be a life-changing question. It was for me.

One day the question really struck home and I knew Jesus was asking it of me.

I had to seriously look at the accounts given about his life in the New Testament.

Jesus said he was “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). He demonstrated how to live and how to die. He radically changed the lives of those who followed him after they claimed that they witnessed the resurrected Christ.

He showed us that God’s Love is unconditional and forever.

And in the process of my effort to get to know him…Jesus changed my life.

I had to make changes in order to follow him more faithfully.

It meant going back to school. It meant changing careers. It meant picking up a guitar that I had abandoned years before and writing songs (and now recording my 4th album). It meant completing the full training for chaplaincy.

It meant changing my views on many things.

It meant standing up for those who are left out. It meant becoming a servant.

It meant becoming “Christ-centered”…not “me” centered.

And what did I receive?

The awakening of my true self…and a life full of blessings and spiritual treasures.

So…who do YOU say that he is?
