Apostles (2)

Simon Peter is one of the best-known apostles. There are many Bible stories about Peter.
In verse 13b of our Bible Reading today, Jesus asked His followers, “Who do the people say I am?” The followers told Jesus that people said He was John the Baptizer, Elijah or Jeremiah.
Then Jesus said (verse 15b), “And who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (verse 16b). Peter was beginning to understand who Jesus really was. Peter made some mistakes while he was learning about Jesus. But several years later, Peter was strong enough to boldly tell people about Jesus.
Peter realized that Jesus was truly God’s Son. He loved Jesus and followed Him until he died. I want to be like Peter. I want to put my faith in Jesus, God’s Son.
What about you? Who do you say Jesus is?
