You Can't Miss Her! (Matthew 16:13-16)

If one were describing how to find singer Taylor Swift in a crowded room, one possible description may be, “You can’t miss her, she is blonde woman.”

Yes, this is true. But it would not be enough information. No, although the description is correct, it is simply not enough.

For centuries, Jesus Christ has been both admired and scorned by mankind. His supporters thought Him to be a great prophet, a teacher, a miracle worker. His critics thought Him to be a blasphemer and heretic.

Now when Jesus had come into the parts of Caesarea Philippi, he said, questioning his disciples, “Who do men say that the Son of man is?” And they said, “Some say, John the Baptist; some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets”. He says to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Simon Peter made answer and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Matthew 16:13-16

Jesus Christ left no doubt as to His true identity. Jesus Christ is God. He was God before the creation of the universe, present at the creation, and will reign forever when the new earth and new heaven are created. He left no room for uncertainty. Yes, He was a great teacher, a prophet, a priest. But these roles only produce a glimpse of His true glory and magnificence.

We can use many words and titles to describe Jesus Christ. But the only proper identification is God Incarnate.

Won’t you take the time to see who Jesus Christ truly is? Once you do, you will never miss Him or mistake Him for anyone else!

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
