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
Build signifies action. When we build something, it has a starting place and an ending. Think about it, build a savings account starts with a $1.oo and then contribute more money. To build a building there is a foundation, a cornerstone and then the dream come true the masterpiece is realized a home is built.
What is God asking you to build? Is it to build a relationship that is broken? Is it to rekindle a friendship? Is it to work on your marriage? How is your quiet time? How are you doing reading your bible? How are you as an employee?
Jesus asks Peter in Matthew 16, “Peter, whom do you say I am?” Peter replies, “You are the Son of Man, Christ, Son of the Living God!” That is the faith Jesus builds his church on. Beloved, do you have that kind of faith?
