Good Morning August 4

There has always been a lot of controversy about Jesus. Who is he? Is he really what he says he is? Jesus once asked His disciples what people were saying about Him? The disciples had heard a variety of opinions. Some say John the Baptist had come back from the dead. Others that He was Jeremiah or one of the prophets of old. That’s all very interesting, but Jesus wouldn’t let the discussion lie there. “But who do you say that I am?” He asked. That really is the central question. It doesn’t matter much what the public opinion surveys have to say. Where do you stand? It was Peter who answered first. “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”(Matthew 16:16) It is in that confession true life is found. It is a confession that God, Himself, reveals to our hearts. It is upon that confession the whole foundation of our life is built. Who do you say that I am?
