Matthew 16:16-17 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar- Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.

People are not recognizes for who they say they are. We can claim to be anyone. People gain their identity by what they do and how they act. The recognition of Who Jesus is doesn’t come from other people. Other people”s words and actions can only cause others to look from the reflection of Jesus they see in people to looking at Jesus for themselves. This is only possible through the revelation that comes from God. We are to reflect Jesus so others will see and look to Him for their own salvation. When they look for themselves God will quicken in them through His Holy Spirit until they bow before Him with the conviction of Who He is. Our question is are we keeping His reflection in us clear nought for others to want to see for themselves?
