Bible Text: Luke 9:18-36 |


Among the most important questions we can ever answer is “Who is Jesus?”. The disciples asked that question after Jesus effortlessly calmed a violent storm (Luke 8:25). King Herod Antipas asked that question after hearing about the miraculous things Jesus and His disciples were doing (Luke 9:9). Then Jesus asks that question about Himself (Luke 9:18, 20). Peter answers, Jesus is God’s messiah, anointed and chosen by God for a special mission. Jesus clarified that He would be a suffering, rejected, and resurrected Messiah (Luke 9:22). God the Father reinforced that Jesus was His Son, chosen and set apart by Him – listen to Jesus. Following Jesus includes self-denial and cross bearing. This is the only path to true life!
