Peters Declaration about Jesus

Peters Declaration about Jesus

Reflection on the Gospel of the Twenty-First Sunday
In Ordinary Time

 

Matthew 16: 13-20

Jesus asked his disciples a question – Who do you say I am? Peter responded saying that Jesus was the promised Messiah they’ve been waiting for.
If Jesus asks us today “Who do you say I am?” What would be our response?  Would Jesus be a friend, stranger, dictator, miracle manager, finance guru, career guide…  Your answer would be a reflection of your relationship with Jesus. Peter was able to respond perfectly because of he had a relationship with Jesus that prompted him to be open to the Spirit of God.
Are we growing in our relationship with God by reading his Holy Word regularly? Are we making Christ a part of our everyday life? Do we make him present in our moments of decision making, happiness, joys and challenges?
Peter was given the keys to the everlasting Kingdom – a Kingdom that would never fall. On the other hand we are just too obsessed with our own kingdom. We want to control everything that happens in and around us. We are sometimes too egoistic to accept that our personal kingdom isn’t eternal and we don’t want to surrender our kingdom in the hands of Jesus. How will Jesus be our Messiah if we don’t want to be saved?
