According to a 2015 Barna survey, 78% of Americans identify themselves as “Christian.” I am sure some of those responses are based on “I’m a good person” or “I go to church” or simply that is the culture in which we identify. But if Jesus were to press you, as He did Peter in the passage above, He would cut through all the pat answers and get right to the heart of the question. Who do YOU say Jesus is?
That is a fair question that each of us should answer with honesty. The Word of God says Jesus took your sin and my sin. In fact, He took the sin of the whole world upon Himself and died a cruel death on the Cross. He was buried in a borrowed tomb. But in 3 days, He rose from the dead conquering death for all eternity. Some may insist, however, that God is God and discount this miraculous resurrection of Jesus as unnecessary for their faith. But Jesus is the key to our salvation by stating emphatically in John 14:6, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
Do you believe that statement? Is Jesus really Who He says He is? Jesus came to earth in human flesh to bridge that gap between a holy and righteous Father and sinful man. Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice for our sin which causes us to be acceptable in the sight of the Lord. By placing our faith and trust in Who Jesus is, scripture says our sin is removed “as far as the east is from the west.” No one comes to Father God except through Jesus! No one. We cannot pick and choose which scripture to believe or not accept. It really is that absolute.
So … the question remains, “Who do YOU say that Jesus is?” Right From The Heart Ministries has a burden to pose this very personal question to all with whom we come in contact. Jesus is either Truth, or He is simply a liar. Everyone has a choice in what and whom to believe. I agree with Peter, “Jesus is the Christ.” I believe that with not just my mind but with my whole heart. I am praying for you to have that same assurance.
