THE question

It's a simple, but most profound question. Jesus is marching along, doing all Jesus kinda things and Peter is walking with him.

At some point, Jesus asks a Jesus kinda question to Peter: "But what about you? Who do you say that I am."

This is THE question of all time. Who do you say that I am, Jesus asks each and every one of us.

Peter answers, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God."

What say you? When the night has come, and the land is calm, will you stand by him (pardon me, Ben E. King)? Will you answer the question the right way? Will you say that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God? Because that's the only answer that has worth.

Don't worry about your good deeds. Don't worry about your hard work. Don't concern yourself with what you wear or don't wear. Nah, nah, nah. Just answer that question, and come on it. It's the stamp on your hand, too. If you believe, you can enter. No matter what you've done, what you've said, what you've believed prior to answering that question.

Who do you say that I am?
