Final Exam Question
Jesus asked the disciples what others thought of him. They replied, “Others think you are a prophet.” Now Jesus wants to know what you think and believe.
So here is the final exam question. So, “who do you say that I am?” This is the question being asked to you.
Who is Jesus? What is your answer?
16Simon Peter replied, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Matthew16:16
Jesus is God. Jesus is Lord. Jesus is the Messiah, the Holy Chosen One. HE is the redeemer. He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. HE is the living sacrifice for all of man’s sins. HE is HOLY and Righteous. HE is the King of Kings. HE is the creator of the Universe. HE is from the beginning. HE is the Alpha and the Omega. HE is God who came in human flesh and SPIRIT. HE is the one who died for your sin. HE overcame death and sin. HE is the Cornerstone. HE is the Rock upon which the Church is built.
When Simon Peter gave Jesus his final exam answer, 17Then Jesus answered him, “Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are you, Simon Bar-Jonah. For flesh and blood [men] have not revealed this to you, but My Father Who is in heaven.”
The knowledge of God can only be revealed to you Spiritually through the Holy Spirit. You can only worship God in Spirit and Truth. Flesh and blood do not build the Church of Jesus Christ. You enter into the Kingdom of God through the recognition of who Jesus Christ is and the profession of HIM publicly in your life.
“Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.” Matthew 10:32-33
We wear shirts with all kinds of advertising. Are you willing to publicly acknowledge that Jesus is God and Lord of all? Are you willing to share openly your transformed life? Are you willing to share your story of how God redeemed you and forgave you of your sin?
Jesus is asking you now, “who do you say that I am?”
