From The Pastor's Desk



"Jesus rebuked Peter, "Get behind me, Satan.  You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do."

Mark 8:27-35 and James 2:14-18


Jesus seems to be hard on Peter, about whom he will later declare, "Upon this rock I will build my church" and will give the Keys of the Kingdom of God.  Also, when Jesus asked his disciples "Who do you say that I am?" it is Peter who answers, "You are the Christ."  Peter believed in Jesus.  He loved Jesus.  So when Jesus said he would "suffer greatly and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes; killed; and rise after three days," it is not surprising that Peter would want to prevent that from happening to his friend that he believed was "the Christ."  Jesus tells Peter not to tempt him to abandon what he knew he must do to fulfill his mission as "the Christ."  He teaches his disciples that they must be detached from the things of this world, including our earthly life, in order to imitate him.  Eventually, they would understand what Jesus meant.  They would suffer much and sacrifice all to imitate Jesus.  They eventually thought like God, not like men.  Who do we think like?


Your servant in Christ,

Fr. Mick Greer
