Sermon Text: Matthew 16:13-28

New City Catechism: Question #37 | How does the Holy Spirit help us? The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin, comforts us, guides us, gives us spiritual gifts and the desire to obey God; and he enables us to pray and to understand God’s Word.


“Ever since Jesus’ Baptism and Temptations we have seen one truth illustrated again and again in this Gospel: Satan leads up, God leads down. Human thoughts soar upward, divine ones move down below. The devil loves human greatness; God suspects it… The cross is an offense to the world; the things contrary to the cross were an offense to Christ.” — Frederick Bruner

 "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose." — Jim Elliot
