In Matthew, we see the significance of the name of Jesus Christ, the Messiah. We all have our idea of what will save the world but the greatest problem is separation from God. Peter was blessed to know Jesus is the answer, our only Savior!
"Simon Peter replied, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' And Jesus answered him, 'Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.'” Matthew 16:16-17
