The sermon series “Identity Theft – You Are Not Who You Think You Are” continues at Calvary Baptist Church. On Sunday, Senior Pastor William Rice’s message was titled “The Question” based on Matthew 16:13-18.
Below are Pastor’s Rice’s Message Notes:
“But you,” He asked them, “who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God!” –Matthew 16:15-16 HCSB
Peter Answers Jesus.
Peter confesses that Jesus is the
–Savior (to save people from their sin)
–Son of the Living God (Peter believes Jesus is a divine person, the visible image of God.)
A spiritual confession leads to a spiritual transformation.
Peter Answers the Crowd.
“When they heard this, they came under deep conviction and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles. “Brothers, what must we do?” –Acts 2:37
“Repent,” Peter said to them, “and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and your children, and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” –Acts 2:38-39
–Repent and Believe
