This is a question that too many people answer too quickly. Before you can answer Christ’s question you have 4 personal questions to answer first. Who am I? How did I get here? What is my purpose here on earth? And lastly, where am I going when I die?
The answer to these questions can only be found in the Truth. Where do you search to find the Truth It’s found in our Bible, both Old and New Testaments.
Christianity, our faith in the Life, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, our Messiah is based on FACTS, facts that are affirmed in History, Archeology and Science.
So, first you must study the Bible from an Evangelistic point of view. That means you have to learn the Truth and how to defend THE TRUTH that you Believe!. Then you will understand your Faith in your Lord and will be able to go back to those 4 personal questions and answer them intelligently.
Who am I? I am a child of God; Jesus is my Savior, my Lord, and my King. I was given to Jesus by God as a love gift.
How did I get here? God said in Psalm 139 vs 13 that He knew me before I was in my Mother’s womb. God said in Romans 8 vs.29, that whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become a believer in His Son Jesus.
What am I to do here on earth? I am to live out the “Great Commission”: To make disciples of all nations, teaching people about the word of God; telling all the Good News of John 3:16.
Where am I going when I die? Because Jesus died for my sins and He was resurrected, and He is alive today; I too will live forever with Him in heaven.
Now, like the Apostle Peter, YOU too will be able to answer Jesus’ question…..Who Do You Say That I Am ?
LORD…You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God !
I am because HE IS !
In HIM I found me !
