Our Name in God’s Kingdom

Matthew 14-16

“ ‘Who do you say I am?’ Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.’ Jesus replied, ‘Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.’ ” Matthew 16:15-18

It’s only when we know Jesus as our Messiah and Savior that we are able to know who we are in Christ’s kingdom. Peter, the rock, was Simon’s identity and calling in the kingdom of God. We don’t name ourselves. God will give us our name and identity in His kingdom as we become His sons and daughters. When we let the world name us and define our worth, but still seek God for salvation and forgiveness of sins, we are missing out on our inheritance and birthright in the kingdom of God.

“Lord Jesus, you are the Messiah, the Savior of the world. Thank-you that you know me and have named me. I choose to live for that kingdom inheritance this day for your glory.”
