Who Am I?
When Jesus asked the disciples “Who do the people say that I am?” They answered, “Some say Elijah. Some say John the Baptist.” But, when Jesus asked them, “Who do YOU say that I am?” Only Peter was brave enough to answer.
Peter spoke to the Lord and said, “You are the Christ. The Son of the Living God.” Then, Jesus went on to say that if anyone considers Him their Lord, they must be willing to “deny themselves, take up their cross, and follow me.”
What that means for us is that we have to be willing to do what HE wants, not what WE want. Even if it means we must go through hardship, pain, and sacrifice—we must deny ourselves and follow Him!
