The Christ, the Son of the living God

“You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Matthew 16:16 NKJV

Peter’s confession
Yours and mine as well
If we truly are believers
And stand on the promises
Of Him who came
And lived and died among us
Brought us to new life
Renewed life
Eternal life

The confessing church
The rock
Jesus is the foundation
Our foundation
Without Him
 as our King and master,
 our lives have little meaning
 we are only the present
 a forever future escapes us
Hope is no more

The Christ
The Son
The Living God

Do you believe
Do you follow
Do you obey
Do you love
This One

Only This One
Ruler of the heavens
Creator of mankind
 and all the planets
All that was
All that is
All that will be

The One
The Christ
The Son of
The Living God

revealed to us

A confessing church
A praying church

Not an opinionated church

A singing church
A doing church
A proclaiming church
A living church
A loving church

Not a “striving to be better than another” church

An obedience to God church
A true church

Jesus is The Christ
He is The Son
Of the most high
Son of the Living God

Do you believe
 and confess 
 and act
 on the foundation
 set down
 by Him
