REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read: Matthew 16:13-20 //
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,[a] and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades[b] will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be[c] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be[d] loosed in heaven.” 20 Then he ordered his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.
The followers should be involved in the evaluation of their performance by asking them questions concerning their experience with their master Jesus did this by asking disciples in Matthew Chapter 16, what is the opinion of people about him in which Peter responded and Jesus asked him further his own perception until you have a personal conviction concerning your leadership you cannot be benefited based on others people’s opinion or conviction.
What is your personal conviction about your leader?
PRAYER: Pray for the grace to get it right.
