Sunday 27th August 2017

In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus asks his disciples: “Who do people say that I am?  What are they saying about me?”  His disciples told him what they had heard.  Some people thought he was John the Baptist, or Elijah, or one of the other prophets!

But then Jesus asks them: “who do you say that I am?”  Perhaps this is the question that Jesus is asking us today! It can be easy to give a flippant answer or to parrot back what we learned in Religious Education years ago.  However, this is a question we may need to ask ourselves once again!

  • Who is Jesus for me now at this time in my life?
  • Is he a friend?
  • A stranger?
  • Our Saviour?

Prayer

Lord our God, as the deer pants for refreshing water, so our souls long for you, O God. Our souls thirst for you, for the living God. We stand in your presence and pour out our hearts to you. We bring before you everything that is painful to us, all our suffering and needs. We also bring you all our hopes and the many proofs you have given us that our lives need not go to ruin but can be directed to greater things. May the light of your Spirit shine on us today and always. Amen
