WHO IS CHRIST TO YOU?
MAIN TEXT: MARK 8:27
Who do men say that I am?
1 John 4:15 – If anyone acknowledge that Jesus is the son of God, God lives in them and they in God.
In this perspective, Christ is likened to the proverbial elephant touched by blind men from its husk to the tail. Each blind man tells about the elephant from his perception of where he touched. Similarly, a song writer wrote-
“How do you treat God? Like a G-O-D or D-O-G
How do you treat God”?
This is a big question for Christian’s today. Your perception of Christ surely is reflected in your way of life. If you give Him the first place in your life, He will remain faithful and bath you always with His presence, because He will know your name and call you by your name, according to John 10. You will hear His voice and heaven will always instruct you. His word in Isaiah 54:17 will always manifest in your life. The angel of favour will always locate you.
In our main text today, Jesus called His disciples on the way of Caesarea Philipp, and asked them about people’s perception of Him. Peter answered and gave Him His rightful name, and our Lord Jesus Christ was pleased with that. That is how He will be pleased with you if you give Him His rightful position in your life.
