Then he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered, “The Christ of God.” —Luke 9:20

For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. —Luke 9:26

And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One; listen to him!” —Luke 9:35

            Relationship with Jesus, confessing who He is and listening to His Word, indicates if we are truly listening to Him and obeying Him— being and doing what He desires.  Is your heart filled with joy to be a follower of Jesus?  Amen!  Then allow Him to work in and through you by His Holy Spirit to accomplish the works you were created in Him for (Ephesians 2:10; Titus 2:14).

            Jesus is the “Christ of God.”  We surely need to honor Him and His Word.  And, as our Father spoke from heaven on the Mount of Transfiguration, Jesus is His Son, His Chosen One and we are to listen to Him.  Are you listening?  Are you putting into practice what He is saying?  Then you will be like a wise man (Matthew 7:24-25).  It is the foolish man that only hears God’s Word but does not put it into practice (Matthew 7:26-27).  So, which really are you— the wise man or the foolish man?  May we be wise.  Yes, Dear Father, may this be so by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son and my Lord, Jesus.  All for Your honor and glory!

            When I first called on Jesus to save me from my sin and to a relationship with God through Him, I was in the military.  Shortly after calling on Jesus, I finished my four-year hitch and was released from active duty.  When I got home my friends at the time thought I was just going through a phase and would soon be my old self.  45 years later the old self is still gone, not that I have all my ducks lined up, but I still believe and am following Jesus and may I do so right to my last breath until I see Him in glory!  Yes, Dear Father, may this be so!
