I Love My Church Text: Matthew 16:13-19

When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” 14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

In verse 13, Jesus ask the question, “who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” I believe before your neighbor, relative or a complete stranger will make a move toward Jesus Christ, he or she will need to see Christ through you. (I Love My Church)

The Bible say’s you were made in the image of God, created after His likeness. (Genesis 1:27)

Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

God declared that, you belong to Him. When mankind represents anything other than God, the creator becomes grieved.

Verse 14, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.”

Verse 15, But who do you say I am? Verse16, Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Verse 17, Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

Peter actually proclaimed Christ as the foundation, and the head of the body.

Listen to, I Corinthians 3:11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body.

Peter is saying, “Everything good, to me, in me, and through me, comes from Jesus Christ.”

You’ll say, “I love my Church, because Jesus Christ is alive in this place!”

Matthew 16:18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

The name ‘Peter’ means Petros, which means a small stone. However, this day, a boulder-like truth came from the mouth of one who was called a small stone.

Latter in I Peter 2:5 Peter’s first epistle; “he say’s, the church is built of living stones.” When you love God’s church, You become as a living stone. (Speaking truth with love.)
