Reading: Matthew 16:13-20
“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man but by my Father in heaven.” (vv.15-17)
And blessed are we, if we believe that Jesus is the Christ, our Messiah—that is a conviction, and a gift of faith that can only come from God. Only God can touch our hearts to believe in Jesus—have you had this experience, my friend? If not, I pray that God will touch your heart—it is glorious and marvellous.
