Discovering Jesus’ Identity
And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
The disciples were not quick learners when it came to grasping Jesus’ identity. In the incident of His walking to them on the water and then calming the storm even they realized they were in the presence of the Son of God. Worship was their response and rightly so.
Responding to His Identity
Have you grasped who Jesus really is? In Scripture, we are confronted with One who is more than a mere teacher, more than a miracle worker. He was introduced as the One conceived by the Holy Spirit who would save His people from their sins (Matthew 1:20-21). God has intervened in our world in the person of His Son. Pay attention to His words and His works and give Him the worship He deserves.
