Jesus was amazed oneday at the answer given by one of his followers precisely Peter.
Matt 16:13-19
"When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and UPON THIS ROCK I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against
it.
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
KJV"
There are some response we get from people that informs us, how experience, learned, matured the reciever is, because out of the heart the mouth speaketh Mat 12: 34. Peter who was once a fisherman and later recruited into Jesus's followers have been going through series oftraining, in order to become a fit instrument for God's work. Amazingly he had gotten hold of a truth that many of his collegues does not have,meaning He was presently getting fit for work.Because the truth Peter had, is that which any follower of Christ, must have in his/ her heart before entering the Kingdom. How awesome will it be, if the believers and the church as a whole can make hold of this truth, not only to know that Jesus once lived and was persecuted but to know that He is Christ, The Son of God.
The world is filled with Men and Women, Proffesors, both Old and young who are normal church attendant but no differentce in lives. Only the answer which Peter gave coming from a committed heart will Jesus build his church.
UPON THIS ROCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH--- Jesus
