For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father.
And so I say to you, you are Peter,
and upon this rock I will build my Church,

Jesus is not a Historical figure or a saint who can be imitated by his teachings like other leaders, but Jesus is the Revelation to those who seek in truth  the Kingdom of God. Peter and Paul were looking for the Messiah to come on this Earth and establish his Kingdom but were seeking him in the Kingly Power and rules and regulations of the Law. Peter and Paul transformed themselves with divine revelation of Messiah and the ways of his Kingdom. They changed their focus of power and Law in to love and Faith and both of them became mighty pillars  and model of the Body of Christ on this Earth.

Who  is Jesus to us ? Is he a  Genie who fulfills all our wishes and requests ? Is he a mighty Exorcist who over powers Satan and all Evil powers in our life? Is he a Saint or Prophet who intercedes for us and fulfills the Prophesies? If we see Jesus in these things our focus is not on Divine things but of Earthly. Jesus is a Divine Revelation , every Word of Jesus is a divine revelation. Jesus can not be understood from the letters of Scriptures or by just listening to the Words but when we reflect  and walk upon the revelation behind the hidden letters and Words of Christ in the act of love and service we meet the real second person of Holy Trinity in our life.

We must stop imagining Jesus in our life but to experience him in  the act of love and service. The Contemplative Spirituality gives us a feeling of his revelation  but not the real person of Jesus. Peter and Paul had this feeling when they confessed him as Messiah and Lord but they met him personally in the mission.  Jesus is an transforming experience or a relationship which we can not attain through the law, teachings, obligations, rules and regulation , discipline but through a  divine revelation of love and service. World may call this revelation in many names but if we collate all the names it equals to the divine love of God.

Prayer :

Abba Father , reveal your son Jesus the divine love the Messiah to me in the act of love and service Amen.
