But who do you say that I am?

Reflection on Matthew 16:13-20

I think that Jesus felt really happy that his disciples recognized him as Christ, but not because he told them so, but because they discovered that through his loving actions and teachings.

Insights on from footnotes and cross-references

I think that Jesus was somehow rewarding them by telling the disciples that when his kingdom came they would have nothing to fear because he would be with them.

1 John 4:7

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.

Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

Who is Jesus to me?

I consider Jesus as a loving figure. He is one of my best friends. He always listens to you. You can always reach him no matter what, He forgives all your mistakes. Jesus does not discriminate and He loves everyone no matter what.
