What’s in a name? This week in Matthew 16, Jesus asks his disciples who people think he is and then follows that up with who they think he is? Peter, of course, stands up and gives the right answer. For that he is given a new name. This story challenges us to consider who Jesus is as well. Like Peter, the trajectory of our individual lives hangs in the balance depending upon our answer.
