A Message from the "R"

Matthew 16:13-16 When Jesus arrived at the village of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “What are people saying about who the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some think he is John the Baptizer, some say Elijah, some say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.” He pressed them, “And who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter said, “You’re the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of the Living God!”

The Message//Remix

I was struck by this passage of scripture since it represents one of the few times in the Gospels that Peter does not stick his foot in his mouth. Peter’s response to Jesus was certainly inspired by the Holy Spirit working within him. Our question this weekend will be, “Who do you say that Jesus is?” Do we recognize him as a carpenter’s son, a prophet, or as Jesus Messiah? We need to accept Jesus as the Messiah in our hearts as well as in our heads; to make our lives a witness to His saving power.

I am honored to be a part of God’s plan, even if He doesn’t always let us in on the whole plan! It is a gift to be called to form this team and lead them to share the love of God and the NCA Emmaus Community with the pilgrims He will send us.

The working of the Holy Spirit is already evident in calling together the team of E-153. We are excited about the opportunity to go to the mountain to once again share our excitement about the message of Jesus with other Christian men.

Please continue your prayers for the pilgrims and team of E-153, that all that we do will be for the glory and honor of God, as we all continue to praise Jesus Messiah!
