Poor Peter! In a mere moment he goes from being a “building block” who first recognizes Jesus as the Messiah to a “stumbling block” who doesn’t grasp His earthly mission. He’s as confused as ever! We’ve all been there. Today, we’re reminded of what Jesus expects from His followers: self-denial and unwavering faithfulness. We are not to conform to the ways of the world, but to the way of the cross. God’s blessings to you as we worship and “come after” Jesus!
2 Corinthians 4:8-18 (Do Not Lose Heart)
Matthew 16:21-25 (Get Behind Me Satan)
