Matthew 16:12-18 (NIV)
13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”15 “But what about you?” He asked. “Who do you say I am?”16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in Heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hades will not overcome it.
In this Scripture, Jesus is stating that when we understand and get it correct. We stop missing the mark. We are in understanding with the Spirit of God. We have opened our heart and eyes to the the Truth. If something isn’t right then it’s wrong. Basic and as simple as that. When, God comes around then and He asks you who you follow, you should recognize who He is. Jesus also says that there is only one way to know that He is the Messiah, by the Holy Spirit.
Currently, I have a struggle in my life. God asked me this afternoon (about an hour ago honestly) when I was iterating with my co workers. ” How will they ever believe in the Cross if you conform to their standards?” BE OF THE KINGDOM!!! Do not have any doubt or hesitation for who you are representing to the world, when you are the ambassador for Jesus. At time it will get lonely, and the world will look at you crazy but GOD….. allow me to repeat…. BUT GOD is with you. I rather have God in my corner than any person. BE who you say you are in Jesus!!! LIVE who you say you are in Jesus!!! STAY in the Kingdom and forget the world.
