18 Now it happened that as he was praying alone, the disciples were with him. And he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” 19 And they answered, “John the Baptist. But others say, Elijah, and others, that one of the prophets of old has risen.” 20 Then he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered, “The Christ of God.”
Every believer must come to the place in their walk with the Lord where they understand who the Lord is personally. For many, especially those who have been raised in church, it’s easy to know the Lord as He has been presented to them by those whom they regularly fellowship with. Pastors preach from what they have learned, teachers or other leaders speak of Him from their perspective, and parents pass down their personal knowledge through simple association, but you must come to a place where your walk with Christ becomes just that…your’s. The Bible equates your personal walk with the Lord to a marriage. Can you imagine what a marriage would look like if the couple only knew one another through what others had told them about each other? The relationship would never come to the place of true intimacy and fellowship that it was intended to. This unfortunately is what the relationship that many have with the Lord looks like. It’s really not a relationship at all, it’s simply a working knowledge of the other party. If you live knowing the Lord only through what others have told you about Him you cannot truly claim to be in relationship with Him. True faith and life comes only through an intimate working relationship with the Author of life itself. Who do you say that He is? – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
