MISTAKEN IDENTITY

READ:
Matthew 16:13-20


He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
-Matthew 16:15

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Joshua 7-9
Luke 1:21-38

My youngest brother, Scott, was born when I was a senior in high school. This age difference made for an interesting situation when he grew to college age. On his first trip to his college campus, I went along with him and our mom. When we arrived, people thought we were Scott Crowder and his dad and his grandmom. Eventually, we gave up correcting them. No matter what we said or did, our actual relationships were overridden by this humorous case of mistaken identity.
Jesus questioned the Pharisees about His identity: “What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is He?” They replied, “The Son of David” (Matthew 22:42). The identity of Messiah was critical, and their answer was correct but incomplete. The Scriptures has affirmed that Messiah would come and reign on the throne of His father David. But Jesus reminded them that though David would be Christ’s ancestor, He would also be more – David referred to Him as “Lord.”
Faced with a similar question, Peter rightly answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16). Still today, the question of Jesus’ identity rises above the rest in significance - and it is eternally important that we make no mistake in understanding who He is. – Bill Crowder
Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,
In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail;
Thy mercies how tender, how firm to the end,
Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend. – Grant


No mistake is more dangerous than mistaking the identity of Jesus.

BEFORE YOU GET ANGRY
Open Heavens

by Pastor E.A Adeboye

BEFORE YOU GET ANGRY

Yesterday we learnt it is not right for us to get angry with God or to take offence against Him, even if we experience the deferment of our hopes. The example of John the Baptist who earlier acknowledged Jesus as the Messiah, but later doubted Him because of his painful experience of incarceration is a warning...More
