But What About You?

The Brew Is A Musing

Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.” “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Christ.” (Mark 8:27–29, NIV 1984).

My Musings“Who do people say I am?” What kind of response would He get today from the “ordinary man [or woman] from the street?” A myth? A man of history whose legend is greater than the facts? A con artist who is still making the con 2000 years later? Delusional?

“What about you? Who do you say [He is]?” One way or another, that is one question we all must answer in this life. The answer is contained in the question — “I AM.”

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
