Seeing Your Life Through the lens of the gospel ~ Matthew 16:13-19

Read 578 Times
1 This makes a turning point in the life of Jesus, and of the disciples. It is the first time that one of his disciples acknowledge him as the
Messiah. Recall turning points in your own journey of faith when you came to some deeper understanding of who Jesus is.


2 “Who do you say that I am?” This is possibly the most important question that Jesus puts to us. In your heart of hearts, how do you answer this question?


3 Jesus praises Peter for his faith and comments that this was not his own doing but a gift of God. Perhaps there have been conscious of the gift nature of your faith. Be thankful for the gift you have received.


4 These are troubled times for the Church and the promise of Jesus that “the gates of the underworld can never hold out against it” are an encouragement. What helps you to draw strength from this promise of Jesus?
