Bible Text: Mark 8:22-30 |


As we continue walking with Jesus through the gospel of Mark’s account of His ministry, we come to a watershed moment: Peter’s confession of Jesus as the Christ. Matthew adds to the story by sharing Christ’s response: “Blessed are you Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but my Father in heaven” (Matthew 16:17). That benediction spoken to Simon Peter some 2000 years ago is the same benediction spoken over everyone who professes Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the Living God. If God never blesses us beyond that in this life, we would still have reason enough to crawl over glass to praise and honor Him for all eternity!
