Realization to reality

Wednesday February 14th, Luke 9: 18 Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say I am?" 19 They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life." 20 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God." We use a public confession of faith in worship, but if it is not personal, it means little. Who do “You” say that I am? Peter was caught off guard and spoke from the heart. It is the confession on which the church is built. Later Peter would have time to think things threw and stumble, but for this moment, Peter connected with that kernel of truth deep within. He knew that this Jesus Was the Christ, for him personally and always would be. We all would do well to connect to that moment in our lives when the realization became for us the reality.
