“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 16:15-16

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“What about you?” Jesus asked His disciples.

“Who do you say I am?”

.

Simon Peter answered,

“You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

.

– Matthew 16:15-16 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

Imagine Jesus turning to you and asking,

What about you, who do you say I am?

.

So, what would my reply be?

Who is Jesus for me?

.

If I don’t make time for Him

to get to know Him

and to learn about Him and from Him through Scripture;

to listen out for His voice;

to share my thoughts and feelings with Him;

to ask Him to help me take a good close look at myself;

to see what He wants from me;

to praise and thank Him for His mercies;

to just be with Him and simply share some special quiet moments…

…if I don’t make time for Jesus

then I won’t get to truly know Him.

.

Who is Jesus for me?

.

.

.

In His Gospels, JESUS tells us that He is…

.

“the Bread of Life” (Jn 6:35)

.

“the Living Bread” (Jn 6:51)

.

“the Gate through whom we will be saved” (Jn 10:9)

.

“the Good Shepherd” (Jn10:11)

.

“the Resurrection and the Life” (Jn 11:25)

.

“the Way, the Truth and the Life” (Jn 14:6)

.

“the True Vine” (Jn 15:5)

.

“the Alpha and the Omega – the Beginning and the End” (Rev 1:8;21:6;22:13)

.

“the First and the Last” (Rev 1:17)

.

“the Bright Morning Star” (Rev 22:16)

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Jesus, most kind,

Jesus, most loving,

Jesus, most meek,

Jesus, most gentle,

Jesus, most mild,

Jesus, most sweet,

Jesus, most amicable,

Jesus, most merciful,

Jesus, most bountiful,

Jesus, most gracious,

Jesus, most lovely,

Jesus, most noble,

Jesus, most renowned,

Jesus, most glorious,

Jesus, full of pity, Son of the Living God,

have mercy on me, a sinner!
