Whom Do You Say That I Am?


"He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God." ~Matthew 16:15-16 KJV
One of the most important questions in history. Whom do you say that I am? Imagine Jesus, standing in front of you asking you this question.

What would you say?

"Well Jesus, there's a lot of people who say You were a prophet or just a good person, even a good moral teacher. They say..."

But whom do you say that I am?

Who is Jesus? Was He just a good moral teacher or prophet? Did He come to earth to simply help people out? To help them with their problems?

Or was He more than that?

Your eternal destiny hinges on the way you answer this question.

Our God is a personal God. He asks each of us individually to receive Him. He gives each of us the choice to decide if we're going to believe what's true or what's false.

Because at the end of the day, He's still God regardless of whether you believe or not.

He just gives you the choice to believe it for yourself.

If you haven't trusted Christ as your Savior, what's holding you back? You can make that decision literally in a matter of minutes. It's the most important decision of your life, yet it's so easy to do.

I or any of the other girls on this blog would love to tell you how to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior if you need to talk to someone!

If you have trusted Christ as your Savior, are you totally sold out for Him? Maybe you need to take a minute right now to rededicate a certain area of your life to Him so that He can be Lord of all.

Who do you say Jesus is?

Live Life Unedited.

Hey guys! :D For those of you who don't know me, I'm Faith and I blog over at Stories by Firefly and Chosen Vessels. I'm so excited to be joining this blog and these lovely young ladies. 


We edit things, don't we? Maybe you don't that much—or maybe you've just never thought of it this way before—but I realized recently that I edit a lot of things.

Books, stories, blog posts, emails, text messages, social media posts...and the list goes on.

And in a way that's good, really good. When we are angry, upset, or hurt, we should be careful what we say and take time to work through our feelings before we spout off something hurtful. (Ranting on social media is rarely a good idea. *wink*)

But what about any other time? What about when we retract something, click that backspace key and remove our personality?

Are we bettering the original? Improving ourselves and our life stories? Or are we telling ourselves it's not right, it's not good enough, it just doesn…

Don't Be Afraid to Stand Out

In our culture, there seems to be a lot of pressure to conform. You know, to fit in with everyone you're friends with, and only do what is 'culturally acceptable'.

I find that there's a lot of pressure (shall we call it peer pressure?), especially during the teen years. There's pressure to fit in - by getting into the cliques, by wearing "cool" clothes, and just by generally blending in with everyone around us.

We want to be liked by our peers, and there's nothing wrong with that.

But I'm here today to tell you: You don't have to conform. You don't have to be like everyone around you. You don't have to be the teenager who rebels, the guy who sleeps around, or the girl who goes to every single party. You don't have to be popular to be loved.

Because that's what the culture says is cool. That's what the world around us is doing.

You can rise above that. You can be so much more. Don't listen to what the world says about y…

Be Merciful to Me

How do you approach God?

Do you approach Him through your good works, the things you do, the way you treat the people around you?

Or do you approach Him through Jesus Christ, Who died for your sins and took your place so you could be made holy?

What is the right way to approach God?

Today, we're going to look at a passage in Luke 18 that shows us how two different people responded in these two different ways, and we're going to see which one was the right way.

In Luke 18 verses 9-14 Jesus tells a parable about two men who went to the temple to pray.
"Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican." v.10 KJV So, the first was a Pharisee. And he came to God through his own works. Watch what he says here:
"The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are,... " v. 11a KJV The Pharisee came to God based on his works and that he was better than the people around him. But how …
