In the evolving human relationship, it is natural that individuals seek out how the perceive each other. It happens because of a human limitation. But at the same time, it is a chance for the better undersdanding of one another and of the nature of relation too.
Jesus asks such a crucial question to Peter: 'Who do you say I am?' This query compels Peter to sum up his own experience and knowwledge of Jesus. The Lord comes down to the level of the ordinary fisherman in order to ask such a question. This attitude transforms Peter himself.
Jesus takes initiative to verbalize who his disciple is and what he can become. And exactly the same can happen in our lives tooo. God chooses us as we are and where we are. Hence it is our task to give ourselves to be revealed and guided by God himself. How weak and inadequate we may perceive ourselves, God does have a wonderful plan for us. We just need to get to know Jesus in our daily life.
Nature, genuine human relationships, Sacred Scriptures, prayer, contemplation, etc. may serve for us. These tools take us to the higher consciousness of God himself. Thus, we are guided by by the divine Wisdom to fulfil the tasks that are destined for us (by s. Jessy Paul SSpS).
