Vital signs - Friday, January 22nd, 2021



“When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭16:13-18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬


Peter was the first disciple to make the confession of Jesus Christ as the Messiah, the Son of God.  This initial confession of faith made by Peter, and eventually by the other disciples, would be the foundation of the church. The disciples were not biblical scholars or religious leaders, but their faith and authority from Jesus established them as leaders of the early church. 

How might you be doubting or questioning your call to serve in God’s kingdom? Our holy God calls ordinary people to be part of His extraordinary work.  God is infinitely greater than any task He assigns, and He remains eternally faithful to those who trust and obey Him. 

Father God, I thank You for using and equipping me to faithfully serve and bless Your people.  Lord, help me to focus on Your abundance more than I focus on my deficiencies. In Jesus’ name. Amen.


“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.”

‭‭Acts‬ ‭4:13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
