Who Do You Say The Son Of Man Is?

Who is Jesus to you? Is He Lord or is He just a good man? Is He Lord or is He just a deity you call on for your needs?
In Matthew 16, Jesus asked His disciples “what do people say that the Son of Man is?”
The disciples told Jesus that some people say He is Elijah and others say he is one of the prophets. Then Jesus asked them, “Who do you say that I am?
Simon Peter responded, “Thou art the Christ, the son of the living God.”
Jesus replied, “Blessed are you Simon Barjona for flesh and blood didn’t reveal this to you but My Father who is in heaven. Thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build My church.”
Jesus question to Peter is a good question for us; “Who do we say the son of Man is?”
Hopefully many will say “He is my Savior and Lord.”
But think about this… WHO is Jesus to you?
Is He really Lord of your life? If He is, that means He controls your life. He governs your life. Is Jesus your Lord?
For lots of people..including Christians… Jesus is their Savior but He’s not Lord. He’s not Lord to them because He doesn’t rule their life.
What about you? Every day, our desire should be to live for Jesus. Why? Because Jesus gave His life for our salvation.
Today, make Jesus Lord of your life. There is nothing else or no one else who deserves to be Lord of your life like Jesus does.
So, if someone were to ask you, like Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Who do you say the Son of man is?” We should all respond, “He is my Savior and My Lord.”
