It appears that the people of Jesus’ time didn’t understand who he was. They knew that he was important, but all their guesses fell short.
That hasn’t changed. People still underestimate Jesus. It’s hard not to—Jesus is God and he is beyond our imagination.
Peter got it right and he was blessed. But he didn’t get the answer from human wisdom or human teaching. God revealed it to him.
That hasn’t changed either. God is still working through his Word and Sacraments to create faith and reveal his Salvation.
Jesus told Peter that the faith that God gave him is the foundation of his church and the gates of Hell will not overpower it.
He would send all his faithful people to carry the message of his work—but not before it was finished.
That’s another thing that hasn’t changed. God still works through us, his church, to reveal Jesus as Savior of the World and to produce repentance and to provide forgiveness.
He still protects us from the power of hell.
And most people won’t understand. They will underestimate the power and the importance of Jesus Christ. And they will misjudge the value of his church. Sometimes we do too.
The church is God’s people—forgiven, equipped, and empowered by God himself. We are the church, sent to open eyes and hearts. Sent to rescue souls. Sent to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a world that is dying without it.
