Jesus asked His disciples,
“Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” (Matthew 16:13).
They revealed the popular opinions that He was either John the Baptist, Elijah, Jeremiah, or one of the other prophets (Matthew 16:14).
Then Jesus wanted to know whom the apostles thought He was, and our friend Peter declared, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:15, 16).
We can fault Peter for many things during the years of his training, but we cannot fault him for his wise perception on the identity of Jesus.
Whom do you say Jesus is? Are you living out that belief?
