"This week our readings in Luke Chapter 9 verses 1 to 36 will focus on various miracles that Jesus performed. Each of these miracles reveals to us something about who Jesus is. In today’s miracle, Jesus demonstrates the power to miraculously provide for peoples’ needs. In this incident Jesus feeds over five thousand with just five loaves and two fishes. Jesus is more than able to meet all our needs even though we might lack the ability to do so ourselves." (New Zealand's Rhema Radio)
Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say I am?""What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." (A.W. Tozer)
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."
Is Jesus a the Son of God, a prophet, a savior, a manipulative story, or perhaps just a concept? In this video below college students explain their views on Jesus and how their perspectives impact their lives.
"But what about you?" Jesus asks. "WHO do YOU say I AM?"
The most important question you will every answer!
