Have You Answered Life's Most Important Question?

Hey, Gabriel Girls!

Life is full of questions. But there's one that is the most important question of all. Can you guess what it is?


Matthew 16: 13-16 gives us a clue. Let's take a look:

"When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, 'Who do people say the Son of Man is?' They replied, 'Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.' 'But what about you?' he asked. 'Who do you say I am?' Simon Peter answered, 'You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.'”

Jesus has never stopped asking this question of every person who has ever lived. And He is asking you this same question today: 

"Who do you say that I am?"  

Who do you say that Jesus is? This is the most important question you will ever answer in your life. 

Why? Because your answer to this question will determine not only the rest of your life, but, more importantly, your answer will determine your eternal destiny.

If you, like some of the people of Christ's time, reply that Jesus is just a prophet (as many reply today), then you will spend eternity separated from Him.

But if you reply that Jesus is the Son of God and the Savior of the world, you will recognize your utter need of Him to save you from your sin.

So, I ask you now: Who do you say that Jesus is? If you are not sure, begin reading the four Gospels--Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John--found in the New Testament. They reveal who Jesus is.

As you read the Gospels, watch Jesus in motion. Listen to what He says. Watch how He treats people. Pay attention to the amazing miracles He performs and the compassion that prompts them. Notice how He comes back from the dead. And while you're reading, keep in mind that you are not reading fiction. You are reading documented history that really happened.

If you are sincerely looking for the truth, you will discover that Jesus is truly who He says He is: the Son of God and the Savior of the world.

Now, it's your turn: Who do you say Jesus is? How did you reach your conclusion? Please share your comments in the box below. The words "No Comments" simply mean that no one has yet posted a comment. So, be the first one! :)
