A Faith Willing to Give Everything

Peter is rebuked because he misunderstood what it meant to follow Jesus. Jesus must suffer, even be put to death. To be his disciple means sacrifice as well. Such a thought was difficult for Peter, just as it is for us today. To lose one’s life for Christ sake is to put self behind and serve others without thought of reward.

God’s Covenant
Help us to know your ways, Lord; teach us your paths (Psalm 25:1-10). God has made a covenant with us (Genesis 9:8-17) and sent the Holy Spirit to guide us (Mark 1:9-15). We follow Jesus’ example and are baptized for the repentance of our sins and the promise of eternal life (1 Peter 3:18-22).

Share the Light

The heavens declare the righteousness, power, and beauty
of the Lord (Psalm 50:1-6). Let the strong faith of the prophets
be an example to us (2 Kings 2:1-12) and the hope of the resurrection (Mark 9:2-9) encourage us as we share the
light of the gospel (2 Corinthians 4:3-6).
