There are a few inescapable questions we all have to answer in this life. Some questions are easy to answer, some questions take a bit of thought, some questions create anxiety within us and some questions just flat out confound us.
Jesus asked the disciples a very pointed question part way through his ministry with them. The question Jesus asked was this: “Who do you say I am?” There were many theories going around as to who Jesus was. Was he John the Baptist reincarnated? Was he Elijah returning from heaven? Was he some other prophet? Peter’s response to this question was that he was the Christ, the Messiah, the anointed one. That is the inescapable question that all of us will answer at one point or another.
This is a question to which there is only one acceptable answer. What Jesus goes on to explain to the disciples, is that the answer to that question will shape your life. Jesus explains that to declare him as Christ; we must deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow him.
