What about you?

Luke 9:18-20

Peter’s Declaration about Jesus
Once when Jesus was praying alone, with only the disciples near him, he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” They answered, “John the Baptist; but others, Elijah; and still others, that one of the ancient prophets has arisen.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered, “The Messiah of God.”

Whatever the crowds say
Whatever history records
Whatever religion teaches
Jesus asks:
What about you
Who do you say I am?
There's no falling back
on what we've heard
No reciting of what others have taught
But a challenge to express
from the depth of our being:
Who is Christ for you?
