Upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
For over 2,000 years people have tried to discredit Jesus and His churches. Yet, His churches still exist and are flourishing to this present day, as a testimony to the promise He made in our verse. Have you ever stopped to realize the significance of this? This privilege has been granted to you through the blood, sweat, and tears of many Christians through the years. Jesus gets the glory, and you get the benefits! Praise His name!
