Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:17-19)

  1. Amen!What an appointment!!!And still so significant today, from Peter to Francis! We should all listen to God, speaking to us through His Holy Spirit, to be able to understand Him, His instruction and even guidance and respond “Lord You know we love you” or “here I am Lord, send me”!
