Text Of The Day: The Identity Of Christ

Matthew 16:13-17
13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.

(Some have said the problem in Baptist life is a lack of Baptist identity. I believe the real problem in American Christianity is a lack of real understanding of Jesus' identity. Jesus Christ is God and by faith in Him, we are made right with God. I want to challenge you to get to know the real Jesus, the one in scripture.)
