But who do you say that I am

Rom 8:37-39: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, thank you for securing the ultimate victory for us by raising Jesus from the dead. We know he is coming with victory on the day you have determined, but we pray that we may live victoriously for you until that day. Through Infant Jesus our Saviour we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 8:27-33)
No earthly being could have revealed this to Peter; but only God. Through faith Peter grabbed who Jesus truly was. He was the first disciple to distinguish Jesus as the Anointed One. Who is Jesus for you? At an appropriate time Jesus tests his disciples with a critical question: Who do people say that I am and who do you say that I am? He was extensively recognized in Israel as a mighty man of God, even being compared with the most of the prophets, John the Baptist, Elijah, and Jeremiah. Peter, always fast to respond, admits that Jesus is truly the Christ. Christ is the Greek expression for the Hebrew word Messiah, which means Anointed One. How dissimilar are God's thoughts and ways from our thoughts and ways! Through disgrace, suffering, and death on the cross Jesus broke the powers of sin and death and won for us our deliverance The Lord Jesus tests each of us in person with the same question: Who do you say that I am? Peter's faith, though was sorely tested when Jesus explained that it was essential for the Messiah to undergo pain and die in order that God's work of salvation may be accomplished. How startled the disciples were when they listen to these words!
