The Lord be with you. And with your spirit.

The gospel reading today is taken from the good news recorded for us by Matthew. Glory to you o Lord.

Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi and he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the son of man is?" They replied "Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets." He said to them "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter said in reply, "You are the Christ, the son of the living God." Jesus said to him in reply, "Blessed are you Simon son of Jonah. 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, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven. And whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." Then he strictly ordered his disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ.

The gospel of the Lord. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

I think many of us have been entrusted keys. Many of us have keys to maybe our room, maybe an apartment, maybe a house, maybe a car, I remember as a little kid, I had, of course, a key to the lock on my bicycle. And I also had a little box that I had some trash, or maybe, I'm sorry, treasures that little kids seem to have! But you know, it depends on what your keys look like. I got these from my dad a number of years ago and I really like them! I don't know what they fit but they really talk about, they speak loudly about the importance of keys. When you have keys, you have the authority. When you have keys, you have responsibility. When you have keys, you have responsibility. When you have keys there are certain things that you need to do to open things, and control things and to let things happen. In the first reading today, Isaiah talks about Shebna. Shebna's keys were probably a lot like these. Shebna had keys to the storehouse. He had the responsibility and the duty to make sure that he used these things in the storehouse responsibly and well. Now Isaiah doesn't talk about specifically what went wrong with Shebna but Shebna was relieved of his responsibility because of the misuse of power. He didn't use his keys properly and Isaiah talks about the keys are to be used as a father to this household. So somehow we get the impression that Shebna might have been a little selfish, maybe the misuse of authority, maybe it was all about him and not all about what he was supposed to be doing. But he had the authority and he misused it. In today's gospel reading we hear Jesus asking his disciples, well, "Who do people say that I am?" and they gave him the stock answers. “You are Elijah, you're one of the prophets, whatever it is.” Then he asked them specifically, and who do "you" say that I am? And Simon Peter said, "You are the Christ. The son of the living God.” Peter knew exactly who Jesus was. And because of that faith Peter was given the keys. He says you are given the keys of the kingdom of heaven. In other words, Peter had that fatherly responsibility to help people get to heaven. To use the resources that are here on earth, to unlock the gift of faith, and to make sure that people understand who Jesus is, He is God. He is the son of God. And because of that faith, we are able to get to heaven. And use the keys that have been entrusted to Peter and likewise use some of the keys that have been entrusted to us. We have to make sure that we don't pull a Shebna, and misuse those keys. Our job is to share generously, our job is to share with authority, with care, with kindness, and love because that's what characterizes Jesus as the messiah and that characterizes the kingdom of God.
