“But Who Do You Say That I Am?”
Help us to be aware, O Lord, of the faulty, limited, and just plain wrong ways that many—but certainly not all—people think about you and respond to you.
At the same time, lead us to reflect on the ways that we think about you and respond to you and help us to grow in our understanding of you.
Let our ways of thinking, talking, and acting reveal that we have made much progress in knowing who you truly are.
“Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say that the Son of Man is?’ And they said, ‘Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ He said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’” (Matthew 16:13-15)
