‘But you,’ he asked, ‘who do you say I am?’

The question of Jesus to his disciples echoes down through time. It is a question that the Lord asks every person who hears of him to answer. Jesus demands a response. There have been many prophets who have claimed to have found the way, the truth or salvation; whereas Jesus declares he IS the Way, the Truth and the Life. Either Jesus is the Messiah, the Christ: or he is a liar and a madman. There is no possible alternative.

Who do you say Jesus is? If he is the Christ, the Holy One of God, and you follow him, how is that reflected in your life? Following Jesus, especially in today’s world, brings many challenges, which the Lord acknowledges, “‘If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let them renounce themselves and take up their cross and follow me…”

This week let us pray for all those who are struggling with the weight of their cross. We pray that they may look to Lord for strength and courage, and always bear in mind the glory of the Resurrection, which Jesus promised to those who remain faithful to his Gospel.
