Mt 10: 1-7

Then Jesus summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every sickness. These are the names of the twelve apostles: first, Simon, also known as Peter, and his brother Andrew; James son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, the one who betrayed him.

These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, proclaim the good news, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’

Who is Jesus to You?

So much of who we say Jesus is depends on our personal relationship with him which depends on how much time we spend with him. Like any relationship, the time you spend together is essential to building trust and, in this case, establishing trust and faith. 

We as believers know in our minds that Jesus is faithful and trustworthy, but do we spend enough time with him daily to know it in our hearts? Do we read his Word daily and ask for his guidance in our day to day affairs, or do we go off on our own to face the challenges of the world, then turn to him when things don’t go our way? 

Who do you say Jesus is? Is he your Lord and Savior, your brother, your friend, or is he the lover of your soul? Who do you say Jesus is?
