Sermon Series: HE’S MORE THAN WONDERFUL (Introduction)

“Who Do You Say That Jesus Christ Is?”
Matthew 16:13-16

Introduction:

Today, I want to take a close look at Jesus Christ’s question in verse 15 (“But Who do you say that I am?”). Our answer to that question determines how we live our lives here on earth. It will also determine where we will go when we die. This is the single most important question we will ever hear, or that we will ever answer.

As an introduction to our new preaching series HE’S MORE THAN WONDERFUL, let’s reflect on a few thoughts from the question: “Who Do You Say That Jesus Christ Is?”
