Our Daily Bread 13th July 2022 Devotional For Today, Wednesday: Message Written By Alyson Kieda (Our Daily Bread Ministries) || ODB  Daily Reading Now 

TOPIC: Who Is Jesus?

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Mark 8:27–30

27 Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way, he asked them, Who do people say I am?”

28 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”

29 But what about you?” he asked. Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

30 Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.

KEY VERSE: Who do people say I am? – Mark 8:27

BIBLE IN A YEAR: Psalms 7–9; Acts 18

ODB FOR TODAY’S INSIGHT: We can observe two things from the disciples’ response to Jesus’ question, “Who do people say I am?” (Mark 8:27). First, the disciples knew what the people were saying about who Jesus was: “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets” (v. 28). They weren’t simply an isolated and insulated group, oblivious to the culture and people around them. His disciples continued to interact with and understand the people to whom Christ was reaching out.

One day soon, they’d be sent to continue His message. Second, the people’s various answers to who Jesus was illustrated that even people who heard and saw Him had different opinions about Him. But Jesus wasn’t content with general answers to the question of who He was. He asked His disciples this question directly. Peter answered, “You are the Messiah” (v. 29).

MESSAGE

Who do people believe Jesus is? Some say He was a good teacher, but just a man. Author C. S. Lewis wrote, “Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher.” These now-famous words from Mere Christianity propound that Jesus would not have been a great prophet if He falsely claimed to be God. That would be the ultimate heresy.

While talking with His disciples as they walked between villages, Jesus asked them, “Who do people say I am?” (Mark 8:27). Their answers included John the Baptist, Elijah, and one of the prophets (v. 28). But Jesus wanted to know what they believed: “Who do you say I am?” Peter got it right. “You are the Messiah” (v. 29), the Savior.

But who do we say Jesus is? Jesus could not have been a good teacher or prophet if what He said about Himself—that He and the Father (God) are “one” (John 10:30)—wasn’t true.

His followers and even the demons declared His divinity as the Son of God (Matthew 8:2916:161 John 5:20). Today, may we spread the word about who Christ is as He provides what we need.

REFLECT: Who do you say Jesus is? If you believe He’s the Son of God, then how can you share who He is with others?

PRAY: Dear Jesus, thank You for being the way, the truth, and the life. I’m glad I can cling to You. Help me to share with others the good news of who You are.
