Description: Peter seems to be one of the most impulsive disciples. Jumping out of boats, chopping off ears, and rushing to “correct” Jesus when he disagreed. Peter is also the disciple whom Jesus chose to build his church. That must mean that Jesus saw characteristics in Peter that he wished to see in his church, and understanding those can help us better understand how we are to function as the body of Christ.

Text: Matthew 16:16-19
Big idea: Jesus said Peter was the rock on which the Church would be built, so understanding Peter helps us understand his vision for his body.
