Matthew 16:13-20 – But What Say You?

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 puts 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.
