"Who do You SayThat Jesus Is?"
Based on Mark 8:27-38
Jesus asks his disciples “who do people say that I am?”
The disciples said, "you are a gret teacher and a prophet." And Jesus askes them again, “who do you say that I am?”
Peter answers, “you are the Messiah!” Then, Jesus explains that the Messiah must suffer and die. Peter tried to silence Jesus - but Jesus rebuked him.
When we say Jesus is Lord, it is both our faith statement and our lifestyle. Following Jesus as his disciples means to risk ourselves - to offer ourselves in the service of God for the world. We follow Jesus as his disciples, as we carry our own cross.
