Luke 9:18-20 ” And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them ,saying whom say the people that I am? They answering said, John the Baptist, but some say, Elias, and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again. He said unto them, But whom say ye that I AM? Peter answering said, The Christ of God. We do not have to get everything right and we want in this life, but there is one question we must get correct, because our life depends on it. Who do you say is Jesus Christ? If you know the answer, then you are rich, you have nothing to worry about, If you know the answer, it is worth more than a million dollars, because money can not heal you, in the book of Matthew 16:26 ” For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world and lose there soul, yes if you know Jesus you will have eternal life. John 14: 16 ” Jesus answered , I am the way and the truth and the life. no one comes to the Father except through me. This is a one way street, there is only one way to get to heaven, there are many places you can get to by using the alternative route, but not to heaven, who is Jesus? John 1 :14 Jesus became flesh and made his dwelling among us, why did He come as a man? 1 John 3:5 ” Jesus had to die a physical death to take away our sins. That is how God set things up, there had to be a shedding of blood. In the old testament they killed animals for the remission of sin and the priest could only do this once a year, So God made himself a body in the name of Jesus and came to earth to die for me and you, but why as a human? Hebrews 4:15 ‘ For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin, Jesus is our example, and He knows how we feel so he can sympathize with our weakness, when we mess up, he knows how we feel, when people stab us in the back, He knows how we feel, when we are betrayed , He knows how we feel, when we are hurt, He knows how we feel. In life one of our greatest needs is to love and be loved, we want someone to know us, to get us, to understand us, we want someone to care for us so much that they would die for us. We want a friend that is more than just a face book friend, someone we can call on and they would come running. Jesus wanted the disciples to know Him because in the days to come they were going to need something to hold on to, because life was about to get rough, they needed to know the power of Jesus to hold on to there faith, why? because He was now about to leave them and they would not understand. when someone makes us a promise the only reason why we hold on is because we believe them, a woman will wait for a man to get out of jail because she believes in him. so she will suffer to be alone because one day joy will come. As children of God we suffer in this world, because the devil does not like us because we know who Jesus, so the devil will steal from us and try and kill our spirit, want us to focus on what we do not have, we do not have enough money, we do not have the man our woman of your dreams and time is running out, but we know that the devil is the father of lies, if we know who Jesus is then we do not worry about those things. Jesus said in Matthew 6: 25 ” Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? God will take care of all who know Jesus forever, so what about the people that only know him as a good man, but not the Christ? My prayer is that they get to know him as The Christ so they can live forever with Him, sure God will allow all to have some joy on earth and that is to give them a glimpse of what is to come. Jesus perform a lot of miracles, He healed the sick, cast out demon, raised the dead, let folks become rich, let folks have some joy, so they could believe and follow Him, now that is a good point, because you may be going through something now only for Jesus to come to your rescue so someone that is watching you can become a believer . As I read the bible I know that Job knew God because if had not known God, he would have given up, he lost everything. Joseph knew God because when his family turned on him, Joseph did not repay evil for evil. David knew God because when he commit adultery and killed a man ,he cried out to God and God heard his cry, do you know Him? I am so glad I know who Jesus is because in my darkest hour of my life, when my family left me, when friends did not believe me, when I was lied on, when I had no job, the only thing I could hold on to is that , I got the answer right, Jesus you are The Christ.
