Matthew 16:13-20 – Jesus is the Reason

Matthew 16:13-20
13
When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

-You can hear the emphasis that Jesus put on His question in verse 15; it is important what people in general think about Jesus, but the most important thing will always be what you think about Him.  Take that mindset into your Christmas holiday; regardless of how many people have turned Christmas into this, that, or the other; no matter how paganized it becomes or how commercialized it becomes, you can still make the choice to celebrate the birth of the Savior this season.
