But Who Do You Say I Am?

Meet Jesus

  • Currently represented by Pope Francis in Domus Sancta Marthae.
  • But he is much more than just this...

A view of Jesus through my eyes...

I say that Jesus is a supportive best friend who helps guide us on the right path. He has a plan for each of us, to help keep up on this path, shown many times throughout the Bible. For example, in Matthew 16:13-20, He tells Peter to build a church on the rock which he is standing on. This is not just a coincidence; the Greek word for Peter means rock. Going along with this, Jesus is also the perfect role model for us. He set an example for us when He was on Earth, showing us how we should live. There are so many negative influences and temptations in our lives, and Jesus is a light who is always there for us and forgives us.

Where do I see Jesus?

I see Jesus in countless places throughout a single day. One of my favorite quotes that ties into this says, "He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together" (Colossians 1:17). Some places, such as local churches, are easier to see Jesus and his work. Other places are simple or small, yet beautiful spots where I can see Jesus. Three of my favorite places that depict Jesus in my life are shown below.

Images that depict Jesus in my life...

The image of a baby lamb is a reminder that Jesus is our shepherd. We are his sheep and he guides us.

The video below is a song that I hear the voice of Jesus. It reminds me how Jesus taught us that God made us in his image and we don't need to change to be beautiful :)

So Who Do I Say Jesus Is?

Jesus not only our friend and brother, but our hero.

"So do not fear, for I am with you...for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you" (Isaiah 41:10).
