God’s Dwelling Place – Day 160

Meditations on the founding and growth of the church: the body of Christ, holding out the truth of the gospel, spreading throughout the whole world, frequently oppressed and suffering, but sure in the hope of a new heavens and earth.

Bible text(s)

16Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

17“Good for you, Simon son of John!” answered Jesus. “For this truth did not come to you from any human being, but it was given to you directly by my Father in heaven. 18And so I tell you, Peter: you are a rock, and on this rock foundation I will build my church, and not even death will ever be able to overcome it.
