Most Important Statement

Jackina Stark vividly recalls making her decision as a young girl to follow Jesus. She writes, “I remember, as a child of 10, sobbing out the Good Confession: ‘I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ I could hardly stop crying. And it wasn’t from sadness or some sort of ecstasy. It is almost beyond explaining, though you may know what I mean. Maybe I cried because my child’s heart knew this was the most important statement I would ever make. This acknowledgement was the key to living. I knew it.”

If only everyone knew it!

“But what about you?” he asked, “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”—Matthew 16:15-16.
