NEED TO ADDRESS”
WHO IS JESUS TO YOU?
SCRIPTURE TEXT: Matthew 16:15 (NIV)
"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I
As we go through life we are faced with many
Jesus asked His disciples two very important
Who do men say that I the Son of man am?
But who say ye that I am?
Today Jesus asks us the same two questions.
It is of vital importance that we address both of
DO MEN SAY THAT I THE SON OF MAN AM?
The world has a very limited view of who Jesus is.
There were those who saw Him as a religious leader
John the Baptist
The preacher of repentance
The great miracle worker
Held the key to proper worship
There were those who saw Him as a fraud
A Law breaker
A companion of sinners
A threat to their religious comfort
Why is it important that we understand the view the
world has of Jesus?
These are lost souls who need to know who Jesus is.
IS JESUS TO YOU?
This is the most important question we will ever
It is important because the answer given determines
a person's eternal destiny.
Peter’s answer is in three parts:
Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the
Son of the living God.
Thou art the Christ
The name Christ means Anointed, the Greek
translation of the Hebrew word is rendered "Messiah"
the official title of our Lord, occurring five
hundred and fourteen times in the New Testament.
This name means that Jesus was divinely appointed,
commissioned, and accredited as the Savior of men
Luke 2:26 (NAB)
It had been
revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he should
not see death before he had seen the Messiah of the
saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is
called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all
things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee
Thou art God’s Son
The Father acknowledged Jesus as His Son:
Now when all
the people were baptized, it came to pass, that
Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven
was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily
shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from
heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee
I am well pleased.
While he yet
spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and
behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is
my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye
Demons acknowledged Jesus as the Son of God.
Luke 4:41 (NIV)
demons came out of many people, shouting, "You are
the Son of God!" But he rebuked them and would not
allow them to speak, because they knew he was the
It is critical that we also acknowledge Jesus as the
Son of God; of the same being, the same substance;
One with the Father
1 John 2:22-23 (GW)
Who is a liar?
Who else but the person who rejects Jesus as the
Messiah? The person who rejects the Father and the
Son is an antichrist. Everyone who rejects the Son
doesn't have the Father either. The person who
acknowledges the Son also has the Father.
Thou art the Son of the Living God
Not only did Peter acknowledge Jesus and the
Anointed One and the Son of God, he also acknowledge
Jesus as the Son of the Living God.
There are many false gods, but only one Living God.
Acts 17:23 (GW)
As I was going
through your city and looking closely at the objects
you worship, I noticed an altar with this written on
it: ‘To an unknown god.' I'm telling you about the
unknown god you worship.
There are gods of wood and stone, and gods made
within the resources of our hearts.
Jeremiah 10:9-10 (BBE)
Silver hammered into plates is sent from Tarshish,
and gold from Uphaz, the work of the expert workman
and of the hands of the gold-worker; blue and purple
is their clothing, all the work of expert men. But
the Lord is the true God; he is the living God and
an eternal king: when he is angry, the earth is
shaking with fear, and the nations give way before
Anything that we worship is a god, our home our
possessions our families can become our god.
The Church is built on Peter’s confession
Matthew 16:15-16 (GW)
asked them, “But who do you say I am?” Simon Peter
answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the
If we fail to have the proper understand of who
Jesus is, we will be unable to help others and we
ourselves will be lost.
But these are
written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the
Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might
have life through his name.
