It Gets Personal

Jesus starts the questioning at a comfortable distance, “Who do people say that I am?”
Then Jesus gets up close and personal and asks, “Who do you say that I am?”

Peter’s Declaration about Jesus

27 Jesus and his disciples left Galilee and went up to the villages near Caesarea Philippi. As they were walking along, he asked them, “Who do people say I am?”

28 “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say you are one of the other prophets.”

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

Peter replied, “You are the Messiah.*

30 But Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.

We may think we follow at a distance.  We might even attempt to follow at a comfortable distance.  Vibrant and vital discipleship get us personal and put us up close to Jesus .
We all need to answer the question, “Who is Jesus?”
