He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again.32 He spoke plainly about this and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 33 But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan” he said. ‘You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns” Mark 8:31-33
I wonder how many of all the professing Christians, including my very self have the concerns of God in our minds! You are right there that we have our feel good activities that we engage in day in day out, year after year! Are these really the concerns of God? Lord impress in our hearts by your Holy Spirit, your concerns and will we pray in Jesus name.
It has been written concerning Christ that he will suffer and be rejected by the very people he was sent to, and yet going through what was written of him, though painful, Jesus uttered no words. He lived to fulfill destiny!
Father help us to be about your business and yours only in Jesus mighty name!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
