Devotion: Who is Jesus? - Mark 8:27

Mark 8:27 Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, "Who do people say I am?" 

Who do people say Jesus is?

·         The Son of God
·         A great teacher
·         Savior of the World
·         An historical person
·         A fictional character
·         A tragic leader
·         A charlatan
·         An ancient miracle worker
·         A first century magician
·         Etc, etc, etc….

The list is endless and descriptions will be added, deleted, as well as discussed until the end of the world. Whoever Christ was, is, and ever shall be, the truth about Him is this: He will never go away or be forgotten.

Questions for personal reflection

Who do I say that Jesus is? How does that affect my life?
Prayer:                        Lord Jesus, Who You are is very important to us. We call ourselves Christians because we believe in your words and try to live by Your teachings. Help us to grow in our knowledge of You and enable us to share our beliefs about You with other people. In Your Holy Name, we pray. Amen.
