But What Do You Say? (Matthew 16)

Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Very few people are “anti-Jesus.” Don’t take that to mean most people are “pro-Jesus,” they are not. The problem is, while most people think Jesus was a positive influence, he was a good teacher, he was a charismatic leader, they may even believe there was something supernatural about him… the majority have never made him their Lord. It matters where you stand with Jesus, salvation isn’t automatic. The question is this: “who do you say Jesus is?” Is he a good teacher who is interesting, or is he your Savior?
