Who Is the King of Glory?

Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.” (Psalm 24:8)

When I read this verse, the first thing that popped into my mind was the account of Jesus with His disciples at Caesarea Philippi. “13When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:13-16)

Ask this question to people today and you get all kinds of answers. Some say He was an influential man. Some say He was a good teacher and taught many good sayings. Some people have no answer. He’s just a historical figure.

But who do you say I am? Peter’s answer is the right answer. Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God. If you are Jewish and understand Messiah, He is the Christ. He is the one predicted to come throughout the Old Testament. He is the anointed one who would save the people from their sins.And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)

But who do you say that I am? Jesus told us many things He is. He’s the light, the way, the truth, the life, the good shepherd, the door, the I AM, the resurrection, the vine, I am from above, the living bread, and the living water. All these are wonderful pictures of Jesus.

But who do you say that I am. It’s a personal question. What do you think of when you hear the word Jesus? If you were asked by someone who was Jesus, what would you say. I’m sure it wouldn’t be in the past tense, but in the present tense. Who is Jesus to you today? It may vary from day to day.

Who is this King of glory? Who do you say that I am?
