Who Do You Say That I Am? (Luke 9:18-22) - 9/10/23

INTRO

  • Jesus is finishing His Galilean ministry

  • He is now on His journey to Jerusalem

  • His journey to the cross

  • He asks a very important question.

  • A question that needs to be answered.

THE CROWD


They had an opinion

  • John the Baptist, Elijah, a Prophet

  • Good man that has done good things

The believed in the person of Jesus

  • They followed Him.

  • They were looking for the Messiah

  • The moment the cross was in sight, they turned.

  • We cannot separate his suffering, death, and resurrection form His messiahship.

  • If we remove the WHY OF HIS DEATH… OUR SINFULNESS

  • Then we also turn Jesus into the WRONG JESUS

They were looking for healer and deliverer (From Roman rule)

  • Today… Looking for a BLESSING GIVER. HEALER, PROVIDER

  • While true, Jesus is SO MUCH MORE

“It is impossible to be wrong about who Jesus and right with God “ (Warren Wiersbe)

WE MUST GET JESUS RIGHT!


THE DISCIPLES


They had a conviction

Tell no one

  • The were looking for a cross less Messiah

  • The time was not NOW

  • He MUST first suffer on the cross

Truths to Consider

  1. True saving faith comes only through the person and work of Jesus Christ. This has been God’s plan of redemption from the very beginning.

  • One must believe on the person and trust in the work of the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sin and the giving of a new life. (His life, death, burial, and resurrection)

  • This belief is not just in the historical facts alone, but in Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord. (Our Mind and Our Heart are one)

  • Jesus always has been and always will be the answer to all the questions of life. The real, biblical, and saving Jesus.
