I Am Christ

Mark 8:29. He asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.”

The word “Christ” means anointed or Messiah. Jesus allowed Peter to say He is the Christ (there’s only one Christ). By His warning not to tell others He is agreeing with what Peter answered. As the Messiah Jesus is the Savior. He is the only one Who can save us from our sins and eternal damnation for them. Jesus paid the price by dying on the cross and taking on our sins. Accepting Him as our Savior and confessing our sins and following what He teaches us is the only way to forgiveness and eternal life with God. We all know some unsaved people. We are first to pray for them so the Holy Spirit will be free to work with them and prepare their hearts and minds for us to share Jesus with them. Our question is are we really doing that? Do we really care?
