Today’s Meditation 12/10/2017

“But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offense unto me: for thou savourest not the things of God, but those that be of men.” Mathew 16:22

Jesus addressed Peter straight on when Peter displayed his thoughts of how things should or should not happen over what God’s plan was. He loved Peter with all of who he was and even said that the spirit of Peter “the rock” would be what the church would be built upon. Even with all that Jesus knew what had to come to pass. In the next verse Jesus went further in laying out how our relationship with him is to be. he said “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me.” 

The continuing verses are even more descriptive how the results of our decision will affect us. Although he loves us, his purposes of him in our lives must be allowed to come to pass. To me that is to learn how to trust him, he will not misguide our lives. Our possessions of this world are only temporary, his purpose in our lives is for eternity. Jesus will come and his reward is with him. May you be blessed today and bless others. Amen 12/10/2017

16 days until Christmas, that is if you count today and Christmas day. 🙂
