Scripture: Matthew 16:13-17.
“When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”

The points I made from this portion were simple.
1. The Lord Jesus is interested in the opinions men have of Him.
2. The opinions that the vast majority of folks have of Christ are wrong!
3. A right view of Christ is set before here in the words of Peter.
“Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Please note that such an opinion can only be gained from the father in Heaven!
“Flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”
