Who Do You Say He is?


2012-12_LT-WhoDoYouSay

Lately, a bible verse from the gospels has been on my mind.  This verse is that of Jesus saying to his apostles, “Who do you say that I am?”  This is a question we so often have to ask ourselves, “Who do I say that Jesus is?”

My answer to this question can be complex, or it can be simple.  My simplest answer would be, “Jesus is my Savior.  The son of God who came to earth in order to give me eternal salvation.”  It could also be as complex as, “Jesus is my Lord and Savior.  He is the son of God and Mary.  He came to earth to teach me how to live according to God’s word and reject the devil’s power.  His name is the one in which demons fear.  He protects me from all harm and saved me from my sins by forgiving me and dying on the cross for me.  He loves me more than I could ever imagine.”

Then, I got to thinking, Just how many times do I tell Jesus that I love Him during the day?  The answer to that is TWICE.  Only TWICE.  Once during my morning prayers and once during my nightly prayers.  I told my parents that way more than twice a day.  He knows that I love Him, but I am sure He also likes to hear that I love Him.  Throughout the day, I need to remember to take breaks from my hectic schedule and just say, “Jesus, I love you.  Thank you for giving me this day and forgiving me for the sins I commit today.  I pray you always remain in my heart and remind me to do YOUR will as I carry out YOUR plan for my life.  For my life is not mine to live, but yours.  Let YOUR will be done through me.”
