Once when Jesus was praying in solitude, and the disciples were with him, he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” They said in reply, “John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, ‘One of the ancient prophets has arisen.’” Then he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter said in reply, “The Christ of God.” He rebuked them and directed them not to tell this to anyone.
He said, “The Son of Man must suffer greatly and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed and on the third day be raised.”
Jesus was preparing them for His death. But we know they still had a hard time believing Him. Many still have a hard time believing Him today. Peter knew, but still doubted. Do you believe in Him? Your soul depends on how you answer.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I believe, help my unbelief. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Hope in God; I will praise him, my savior and my God.
