Thoughts Along the Path

Pastor Tom Joyce

April 24, 2023


“You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.”

Matthew 16:16


The most important part of a building is its foundation; a solid foundation cannot be shaken. Jesus asked Peter a simple yet profound question, “but who do you say that I am?” Peter’s response was unwavering and immediate; “you are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.” Is our response clear and unequivocal?  Do we define Jesus depending on how the winds of culture blow our understanding of who Jesus is? Faith is all about knowing, without a shadow of a doubt, that Jesus is our firm foundation on which our very life, and eternal life, depends; there is no other. “From the end of the earth I call to you, when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” (Psalm 61:2) Your faith leads you to the rock that is Jesus, Son of the living God; begin and end your day knowing that nothing in this world, no pain, no challenge, nor anything will ever, ever be able to separate you from the “love of God in Christ Jesus your Lord,” your Rock and your foundation.  As Jeremy Camp sings, “you can have all the world, just give me Jesus,” Son of the Living God.

Thank you Jesus for being my Savior, my foundation, my hope, and my joy.
