2014-06-16 - What Would Peter Say?
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. (Matthew 16:18)
It's hard to choose my favorite experience, while hanging out with the Lord Jesus. Some may think it was my miraculous glide on the water. While that was exhilarating and humbling, that isn't my favorite. It would have to be when Jesus revealed my destiny.
There was something profound in the revelation Jesus spoke about me. It was pretty powerful to believe that Jesus had enough confidence in me, that I was going to be the foundation on which His church would be built.
I mean, I knew God loved me, but I didn't think even the Lord could see past my imperfections. We can get caught up in what people or our mind tells us about ourselves, and forget the truth that we are made in the Lord's image and loved by our creator and Father.
I am grateful I knew, know, Jesus on a personal level. Without that deep connection, I would be lost.
