Pastor's Message...

March 2018

Who do people say that you are?

     I googled myself the other day. It’s a humbling experience. I clicked on the “image” tab to see what pictures there are of me floating around in cyberspace. The first page of images had 6 pictures of my son Rob, who happens to share my name. I’m fine with this. He happens to be much better looking than his old man. What I wasn’t prepared to see, however, was some of the other images that came up in the search. There were [and this is strange] three images of female tennis players, a photo of Senator Orin Hatch, a self-portrait of Vincent Van Gogh, and a hydrangea plant. Of the 400+ images, not one of them was of me!

Who do these people at Google think that I am?!!

     A hydrangea plant? Really?!! In the 8th chapter of Mark’s gospel, Jesus is traveling with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi, when he turns to them and asks, “Who do people say that I am?” Everyone in the group had a guess, but only Peter got it right. “You are the Messiah”, he proclaims, and Jesus acknowledges it to him. Knowing who Jesus is, especially during Lent, is a valuable piece of information. It’s important to know who you’re following, and where they might be leading you. Hung over the back of the rocking chair in my study is a blanket with all the names for Jesus found in scripture. Immanuel, Bread of Life, Prince of Peace, The Good Shepherd, The Alpha and the Omega, and a dozen others, gives us more than just a name to call out when passing him on the street. They identify what he means to us on the deepest of levels; redeemer, savior, peace-maker, burden bearer, light in darkness, healer, “the way, the truth and the life”.

Who do YOU say that Jesus is?

     Having an answer for yourself might help your Lenten journey.

In the Spirit,

Rev. Bob Faulhaber Jr.
