“Who Do You Say I Am?”

Jesus 2

Awhile back the angels asked to post on the Gospels from Sundays. With Love and Gratitude- Here is the Gospel of Luke 9:18-24

Once when Jesus was praying by himself,
and the disciples were with him,
he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?”
They said in reply, “John the Baptist;
others, Elijah;
still others, ‘One of the ancient prophets has arisen.’”
Then he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Peter said in reply, “The Christ of God.”
He scolded them
and directed them not to tell this to anyone.

He said, “The Son of Man must suffer greatly
and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes,
and be killed and on the third day be raised.”

Then he said to all,
“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself
and take up his cross daily and follow me.
For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.”

Jesus is predicting His Passion and preparing the disciples for what is to come. It would seem as if Jesus were to be preparing the disciples for their own ministry with Christ- but the words can still be applied today. Bringing our awareness to the fullness of God, our walk and service in Christ, focusing on the ways of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. , and denying the old way of living for Christ Jesus. 

In Jesus’ Name
