When I walked on Earth, people had different opinions about Me. The religious leaders said that I was a blasphemer. Others thought I was Elijah. When I asked Peter what his opinion of Me was, he had the right answer.
Peter said, "You are the Christ, the son of the living God." I told Peter that upon this rock I would build My church. I was not saying that Peter would be the rock that I would build My church upon. I was saying that My church would be built upon his confession, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
True believers can express the same opinion of Me that Peter declared. When you truly believe that I am the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and you accept Me as your Lord and Savior, it should not matter any longer what opinions others have of you. What matters is the opinion My heavenly Father and I have of you. You are My Father's precious child and you are My beloved one.
