[Jesus] saith unto them, But who say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Matthew 16.15, 16.

This is what the church is—the voice of Christ which He leaves on earth. God puts the church on earth to declare and to confess Christ. It would be totally unacceptable for Peter merely to say in his heart: “I believe the Lord has power and He reigns. I believe the Lord is glorious.” It would not be enough only for Peter to say: “Lord, I believe You in my heart.” What the Lord asks is: “Who say ye that I am?” “Ye” here points to the disciples. It is therefore expected of them to do one thing: to speak out with the mouth. We may think that believing in heart is sufficient or praying alone is adequate. But if we see that the church is to stop the gates of Hades, then we shall appreciate how full of life and power and authority is this declaration of who Jesus of Nazareth is.
