When we study the Bible with our kids, we show them what is most important in our life.
God is not a PART of our life, He IS our life.
We have life because He is the Creator. Every morning we wake up alive to a life He has provided. Studying the Bible helps us to know more about God and His plan for our life. It is how we discover who He is and who we are.
Jesus would ask His disciples, “Who do you say I am?”
They had grown up hearing about the Messiah who would come to be King of His people. Once again, they would have a King.
You see, they were under the ruling authority for many many years and were awaiting their King.
Jesus was the Messiah, but He was not the King in their heads… He was the King reigning over all the heavens and the earth, not their small territory.
After spending time with Him and witnessing His miracles, they would have a new bigger perspective of what the Kingdom of God would be and who He actually was.
The question, “Who do you say I am?” can be asked for us too.
Not only do we need to know who Jesus is, but we need to know who He says we are too.
Jesus, who do you say I am?
