Who Do You Say I Am?

We serve a God who cannot be fully unravelled. He is so simple but yet so complex. We cannot fully define Him because mere words of mortal men cannot be used to define an immortal God. He beats human imagination. Science cannot explain Him. He doesn’t fit into the box men try to put Him in. It’s not possible for a creation to fully understand her creator. This is because the wisdom and knowledge of the creator supersedes the one of the creation.

It is possible for you to be with someone for years and still view the person based on what others say s/he is. I guess this was the reason Jesus Christ ask his disciples who they said He was. Thank God for Peter who had a revelation through the Holy Spirit of who Jesus is.

13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”

14 “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.”

15 Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:13-16)

So if i may ask, who do you say Jesus is?

Interestingly He becomes who you say He is to you. The challenge with most christians is that they only view Jesus Christ as a forgiver of sins. So although they are christians, they believe in Jesus, they are unable to walk in the supernatural. They are unable to benefit from the other sides of Jesus Christ because they don’t view Him that way.

If you see Jesus Christ as a healer, He becomes that to you. If you see Him as a provider, He becomes a provider to you. If you see Him as a miracle worker, He starts working miracles on your behalf. Never limit your definition of God to one thing. He is bigger than what you can ever think. Call Him into any situation. Give Him the chance to show forth Himself in every aspect of your life. Remember He is God. You can never overuse Him. What a privilege to know this!

  1. Please be careful which phrases you put behind the other. In the last paragraph you suddenly jump from Christ Jesus to Jehovah God, two totally different Biblical characters, one being a human being the other the Eternal Spirit God.

    Today there are still too many Christians who can not give the right answer to Jesus his question “Who am I?” Lots of them may perhaps know what so many others say that Jesus would be but is not. Not enough people want to accept that he is the son of God, the sent one from God, the high priest of Gdo and the mediator between God and man. The majority of Christians is still blind and deaf for the Words of God, who declared Jesus to be His only begotten beloved son, and still take Jesus as their god.

    Hopefully more people shall come to see who he really is and what he really has done for mankind, for you and all those around you.


    1. I really appreciate you taking your time to read and leave a comment on my blog. Thank you so much for shedding light into this post. In this post i was trying to point out the reason why some christians aren’t enjoying the fullness and the benefits of having and knowing Jesus Christ. I tried to explain this in the last two paragraphs. Probably i didn’t use the right title. But i honestly do appreciate your feedback. It is well noted. Thanks again.
