What would YOUR neighbors say?
In Luke 9:18 we read, “One day Jesus left the crowds to pray alone. Only his disciples were with him, and he asked them, ‘Who do people say I am?'”
The video below picks up on that question by asking people on the streets of New York City who they think Jesus is. Take a couple of minutes to watch it …
New Yorkers are often asked for their opinions because it’s an easy city to step out onto a street and find people to ask questions of.
But if you were to take a camera to the homes lining the street you live on and ask the people in those homes who Jesus was, what would they say?
Since they are your neighbors, it might be something worth knowing. Right?
How different would the answers be from your neighbors regarding the question of who is Jesus? How many really know Him? How many only know a little about Him? How many don’t know Him at all? What could you and your local church do to help these people know the real Jesus?
These are important questions for you and your church. So why not get a couple of friends together, grab a video camera, and head out to the streets of your community and video the answers your neighbors have to the question of who is Jesus. Then show the video at church. Let your neighbors’ own words help motivate your local faith family to do something to help introduce the people in your community to the real Jesus Christ.
By the way, Jesus followed up the question He asked His disciples with an even more important question for them: “Then he asked them, ‘But who do you say I am?'” Luke 9:20.
Who do you think Jesus is?
