WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?
Help My Unbelief
Who is Jesus to you? Like many of the people in the Bible, we have expectations of who the Messiah is and how he should act. But we cannot customize Jesus to our liking and we don't get to define what it means to follow him. He gives us clear instructions in Matthew 16:24, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me". We need to let go of the Jesus we created to suit our desires, be willing to endure things we may not want to, and follow him. This journey will not be easy, but we need to keep in mind that Jesus isn't after fans, he's after our hearts.
