You are Peter, and on this rock, I will build My church.” Matthew 16:18. When Jesus renamed Simon as Peter (John 1:42) it wasn’t a random choice.  “Peter” means “the rock.”  But it took a while for Peter to live up to his new name.  The account of his life reveals him as a fisherman known for his rash and shifting ways.  If you, like Peter, are a follower of Jesus, you have a new identity. You are a Christian, which literally means, “Christ-one”. You are one of the “Christ-ones.”  This title affirms who you are and calls you to become what you are not yet.  God is faithful, and He will complete His good work in you (Philippians 1:6). We honor God’s name when we call Him our Father and live like His children.
