Who do you say that I AM?

In the end of our life- at least once in a lifetime, soon or later those who have heard about Jesus will finally have to answer this question, 'Who do you say that I AM?' (Matthew 16:15) While sitting at Siang2 corner (equivalent to mamak at semenanjung, or coffee shop for those oversea), a waiter will asked, 'Mau minum apa?' and we have to answer! (even if we keep silent, that's the answer- mean no) A girl asked a boy, 'Do you love me?' A wife asked her husband, 'What time will you be back?' All this required an answer!
After preaching, a pastor asked 2 girls if they would pray and receive Christ. The first girl gave her heart to christ. He turned to the second girl, expecting her to make the same decision, but she said, 'I need to, but I don't want to do it right now.'
'If you know what you need to do and the Lord stands ready to save you,'
He asked her, 'is there any reason why you should not do it right now?'
'I am just not ready,' she replied.
He said, 'Behold, now is the accepted time; today is the day of Salvation' (2 Corinthians 6:2) 'You can give your heart to Jesus.'
She said again that she was not ready. He knew he should not press beyond that point because he would be manipulating, so he said, 'All right, then I pray that you will do it. Before I go, would you shake my hand?' She said she would. He told her, 'If you will take Christ and eternal life, would you take my right hand? If you take the devil and eternal hell, would you take my left hand?'
She asked, 'What???' 'You said you would shake hands.'
She stepped back and said, 'I am not going to shake hands with you.' 'But you said you would.' 'Well', she replied, 'I am not going to choose the devil and eternal hell.'
He told her,'Well, you are either going to say yes to Jesus or no to Jesus. He said, 'Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.' (Matthew 12:30) Now, will you shake hands with me?'
She said,'I'm not going to shake hands with you. I just don't want to decide.'
(Above I quote from Adrian Rogers book title 'Unveiling the End Times in our Time') The point is this: If a person decides not to decide, that is a decision! We are free to choose; we are not free not to choose. If you died today, where would you be- in the Lord or outside of the Lord? God forbid, maybe seconds after you read this- you died because of too much surfing internet or can't breath because didn't check Facebook every 1 hour. hi2... Now, Who do you say that Jesus is?
