As a millennial who barely made the cut off in 1996, I constantly find myself deciding whether or not I want to be counted with my generation. However, after working all summer in an office with coworkers at least 10 years older (or more often my parents’ ages), I suppose I will concede and succumb to the stereotypes assumed of my age.

First and foremost, as a millennial, I attach “ing” to many nouns in an attempt to make them verbs and communicate with my generation.

“’But what about you?’ he asked. ‘Who do you say I am?’ Peter answered, ‘God’s Messiah.’” (Luke 9:20)

Who do you say I am? In Luke 9:20, Jesus was speaking to His disciples and asks them who the crowds were claiming Him to be after witnessing or hearing about His ministry for the past few years. After hearing the disciples’ responses, He directs the question to them and asks who they believe He is after walking with Him, hearing His teachings and sharing life with Him.

Should we hide away from the world trying to avoid all possible scenarios that might cause us harm? Certainly most would agree that hiding away from the world is not really an option. Besides, who’s to say tragedy cannot befall us even while we are trying to avoid it. We live in a fallen world were bad things can happen to any one of us at any time.
