Will the Real Church Please Stand Up? Matt. 16:13-16
Jesus asked the disciples, "Who do men say that I am? They responded with different answers, but Peter said, "Thou art the Christ - the Son of the Living God." Jesus said, "Flesh and blood did not reveal that to you." Jesus went on to say "Upon this rock, I will build my Church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it." The foundation on which His Church would be built is the Revelation of Who He is - to those who know His true identity.
He was talking about true believers: with the strength of so many, so powerful, that the all the power/demons from hell will not prevail against it. The works of darkness will never defeat those who “know” Him!
You either build your house on a rock, or on sand. On Christ, The Solid Rock I Stand; All Other Ground is Sinking Sand
Only what we build for Christ will last. What do we build for Him?
