QTVOTD: True knowing of Jesus is revealed by the Father Himself…

“He said to them, But who do you [yourselves] say that I am?  Simon Peter replied, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.  Then Jesus answered him, Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are you, Simon Bar-Jonah. For flesh and blood [men] have not revealed this to you, but My Father Who is in heaven.” Matthew 16:15-17 ->me: How awesome is God to prepare this passage with an amazing conversation had on the phone yesterday!!!  There are so many things that people today will say about Who Jesus is.  A prophet like Joseph Smith, Buddha, or even Mohammad.  Some would say He was an angel and others would say He was a crazy deranged man. So, who do you say Jesus is?  This simple question will let you know right were someone’s relationship with God stands.  Who do I say that Jesus is?  The Son of the Living God.  God the Son Who knew me before this earthly time began.  God in the form of a perfect man Who out of love for me, gave up His heavenly home to come to this cursed earth to provide a way back to the Father.  A Loving Savior Who even though He knew me as a wretched sinner, still gave Himself as a perfect and lasting sacrifice for my Salvation.  A Loving Intercessor Who, TODAY, sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven to represent me, my requests, and my needs before the Holy Father.  Much, much more!!  When a recognition of Who Jesus is, is deeply embraced in one’s bones, it has been revealed by God the Father Himself; not by anything or anyone her on earth.  So, when you see someone who has fallen away from the faith, we must ask ourselves whether Who Jesus is was ever revealed to that person by God the Father in the first place.
