Who AM I

In our Christian walk, we learn, we grow and we mature or rather continue maturing. If we do not take heed like Jesus said, “we fall”. In falling, we are given grace to rise and move on unto perfection.

Jesus being our perfect example threw the big question to His disciples. “Who do people say that I am”? He got a variety of responses according to the perception of those who generally see Jesus. We discover that Jesus was likened to some prophets of old.
There is always the tendency to assess people either subjectively or objectively. Jesus was no doubt seen objectively by the manifestations that people observed.

Usually there is a divine assessment that goes beyond the mere perception of people. And I suppose this is where purpose comes in. It took a revelation from God for Simon to state the real Jesus and His purpose. “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God” (NIV).
Jesus affirmed the confession of Simon Peter because it conforms to purpose since He is more than just a prophet.

When we find people who identify with the purpose of God for our lives, then we can build and leave a legacy in the natural. The Church is marching on as Jesus predicted because there is an everlasting legacy, a Spiritual legacy, a Kingdom that has no end. The gates of hell shall not prevail.

On our natural plain, we shall be assessed by people from afar and from people who are close but there is divine purpose that will be in line with the Will of God. Jesus said of His suffering and death, “for this purpose I came”.


Matt. 16: 13-18
