Read Luke 9:18-20

Luke 9:20

Bible Study

Jesus is in the region of Caesarea Philippi. Today the place is called Banais and we will be visiting it soon. Here many pagan gods were worshipped - from  pan to the imperial cult of the Roman Emperor.  Surrounded by images of false gods, the true God wants to be sure his followers understand who He really is.  Some questions are more important than others, and this one is near the top.   Each of us must answer this question.  

Key Word: "Messiah (Cristos in Greek)"

Peter proclaims Jesus as the awaited Messiah, Cristos in Greek which means the “anointed one”.

Reflection and Application

A significant moment of conversion is when we can surrender the images of God that we have created and seek to have God show us who He really is. 

Prayer

Take a moment and ask Jesus to place In your heart the same Spirit that moved Saint Peter to proclaim Jesus as the Christ. Ask Him to be Lord of your life once again.
