Passage and Notes - November 22, 2020

Sermon Title: Built Different

Matthew 16:13-18
13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?”
14 “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.”
15 Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus replied, “You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being.
18 Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.

Built Different:
A term used to indicate when an individual or a thing is on another level. It also implies the individual is fearless, elite, and thinks in an advanced manner.

No weapon formed against the church will prosper.

1 Peter 2:4-6
4 You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple. He was rejected by people, but he was chosen by God for great honor.

5 And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God. 6 As the Scriptures say,

“I am placing a cornerstone in Jerusalem,
chosen for great honor,
and anyone who trusts in him
will never be disgraced.”

Who do you say that he is?

Jesus is the ROCK, Jesus is the ROCK that the church is built on.

We are the church and we are built different because Jesus is the solid ROCK!

Jesus Is Reliable

Jesus is Omniscient = All Knowing

Jesus is Caring

1 Peter 5:7
7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Jesus is a Keeper

Jesus is a keeper of his people

Isaiah 26:3-4 NLT
3 You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
4 Trust in the Lord always,
for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.

Jesus is a keeper of his promises

Jesus is our ROCK!

Jesus is our…
• Reliable
• Omniscient = All Knowing
• Caring
• Keeper

Jesus is our ROCK

I am built differently because I am the church.
I am built differently because It’s on Christ the solid ROCK I stand.
Christ is Reliable
Christ is Omniscient (All Knowing)
Christ is Caring
Christ is a keeper
He keeps me and he keeps his promises

Ways to Learn and Grow
We know that many of you are seeking ways to listen, learn and grow in this season. As a church community, we believe the gospel is good news that tears down walls and builds bridges. Our faith in Jesus leads us to intentionally build bridges across ethnic, cultural, economic, and gender barriers. There is more work to do, and we have not arrived, but as disciples of Jesus we have and will continue to learn and work against any and all forms of racism, racial injustice and violence, in Jesus’ name. Click HERE for a list of resources and ways you can grow and
learn with us.

Anxiety Resources Page
We have created a webpage with resources on how to understand and reduce anxiety. Find those workshops, podcasts, and more at DIVEintoFLOOD.com/Anxiety
