You are the Christ

“You are the Christ,
the Son of the Living God.”
we needed no further words
when Christ asked us this question,
“who do you say I am.”
Peter said it all,
his response, so boldly,
“You are the Christ,
the Son of the Living God.”
There it was, as plainly as possible
our collective statement of faith
nothing more to say
our Master, the One we follow
is the Messiah, the One long foretold.
But what did it mean,
for us to speak it our loud?
