Daily Word Of God

Luke 9:18-22

One day Jesus was praying alone, and his disciples came to him and he put this question to them, ‘Who do the crowds say I am?’ And they answered, ‘Some say John the Baptist; others Elijah; others again one of the ancient prophets come back to life.

‘But you,’ he said to them, ‘who do you say I am?’ It was Peter who spoke up. ‘The Christ of God,’ he said.

But he gave them strict orders and charged them not to say this to anyone. He said, ‘The Son of man is destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death, and to be raised up on the third day.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Jesus prayed frequently in order to stay “connected” with God the Father through the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ prayers enabled Him to be totally focused on fulfilling His Father’s Will in everything that He did and say.


  • Peter was inspired by the Holy Spirit to proclaim that Jesus is “The Christ of God”. Are you aware of the Holy Spirit’s promptings and inspirations in your daily living?


  • How often do you pray? Do you have a prayer “corner” or room in your home where you can be “connected” personally with the Lord? The greatest gift you can give yourself is to develop a good prayer life.
