Session 9

Who do you say Jesus is?

Read: Luke 9

Jesus got alone with His disciples after a day full of ministering and serving. After Jesus spoke to His Father in prayer, He began to question His followers and prod their hearts, “Who do the crowds say that I am” (Luke 9:18)? If you were to poll a crowd today, you would get similar answers: 

  • A healer of the sick and crippled
  • A wise teacher and theologian
  • A “nice person”
  • A good example
  • A close friend
  • A good luck charm
  • A martyr
  • A prophet foretold or a former prophet who'd come alive again
  • John the Baptist (who was actually Jesus' cousin)

“'But, what about you?' he asked. 'Who do you say I am?' Peter [without hesitancy] answered, 'God's Messiah'" (Luke 9:20).

Just like today, Jesus was known more often by things that He did. Above all, despite all, Peter saw Jesus as the promised Messiah and the Son of God. He was sure of Jesus' identity, as well as Jesus' place in his own life.

What about you? Who do you say that Jesus is? Is He merely one of those things in the list above, or a combination of several? Or is He the total, end-all, be-all in your life? Is He the risen Savior who has set you free from sin? Is He The King of your heart, and the reigning Ruler of your life? Romans 10:9-10 says, "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Who do you profess that Jesus is?

Reflect:

  • Who do you say that Jesus is?
  • If you have confessed Jesus as Lord, does your life reflect your decision?
  • What is a step you can take today to surrender to Jesus' will for your life?
