Does your perception of Jesus truly reflect who He is? Many reject Jesus based on their own view of Him and what they think He should be like as the Son of God. However, their is a simple truth that must be taken into account...You can't reshape Jesus into something that He isn't. He is who He is. And neither should we allow Satan's distortions take hold of us. Uncover the truth about the Messiah and it's daily impact in your life.
21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life. 22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!” 23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”
MATTHEW 16: 21-23
Practice The Way of Jesus:
We are more acquainted with God on the mountaintop than in the valley, more acquainted with the Jesus of victory on resurrection morning than Jesus praying through tears in the Garden of Gethsemane, more well-acquainted with the King of Kings than the Suffering Servant. This week, consider what it would look like to suffer well as a Christian and seek to serve someone who's in a season of suffering.
