Which door do you choose? Who or what do you choose to follow? These are the kinds of questions we are challenged with in today’s text.
Jesus challenges the disciples and challenges us with a question of loyalty.
Jesus begins to tell them that he will be going to the cross and in three days be raised from the dead. But Peter, who showed all kinds of loyalty in the few verses before, now says, “God forbid it Lord!”
But Jesus isn’t having it. The truth that is so hard to admit is that Jesus has gone to the cross for and suffered for you and me because of the great love that God has for us. You can watch the whole sermon on YouTube or listen to it on our podcast.
