When Jesus turned to the apostles and asked, “But who do you say that I the Son of Man am?” The most important question of my life is whether I acknowledge Jesus as the Christ the Son of the Living God. This is not a small question or easily answered. Each day by what I say and how I live I give affirmation or denial or apathy to the question.
Similar to the question was what Jesus asked Peter after the resurrection at the Sea of Galilee, “Do you love me more than these?”
When I am distracted by hypothetical questions, I think of a question on the same occasion, “What is that to you? You follow me.”
Relationship is most important.
