Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, “Who do the crowds say I am?”

They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life.”

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “God’s Messiah.” – Luke 9:18-20

God was always out there somewhere in Lisa’s life. She knew when struggles came, she was to pray and hope for the best. She daily lived her days working full time and caring for her two school-aged children. Life was busy, but she got by.

At church, the pastor was reading the Scripture where Jesus was asking the disciples who they thought he was. The message the pastor gave showed the importance of knowing who Jesus is to us. So as a response, they passed out pieces of paper to the congregation for them to write down who Jesus was to them. Lisa stared at the blank piece of paper, and then stuck it into her purse.

We know who people are to us in the relationships we experience. Mother, father, friend, mentor, coworker, son, daughter, confidant, and more are some of the people we interact with in life. We relate to them according to the role they play in our life. What role does Jesus have in our life?

Prayer: I praise you, Lord, for the role you have in my life. I pray that our relationship grows stronger each day as you journey with me through life. Amen

Faith Tip: Determine the role Jesus has in your life. Is there a need for change?
