Praise In the Presence of God : Day 2
Son of the Living God
These words are rich with meaning, giving clear definition to what Simon had come to believe about Jesus. It’s a complete declaration of faith.
You are Christ—that is to say: “Jesus, You’re the Messiah, the anticipated King of glory, the promised One.”
The Son—that is to say: “Jesus, You are God-become-flesh, the Word from eternity incarnate in time.”
Of the living God—that is to say: “Jesus, You are God! You are more than a superhuman, more than an exceedingly wonderful teacher, more than the sum of humanity’s highest potential. You are the Creator of all things come to be the Redeemer of all mankind."
