James 2: 1-9; Psalm 34; Mark 8: 27-33.

A suffering Saviour.

St Peter’s vision of a Messiah was that of a powerful deliverer of God. But Jesus is the Son of Man who must suffer greatly, be rejected, killed and rise again. Humanly speaking, it would have been tempting for Jesus to have taken an easier path. Later he would sweat blood thinking about his suffering and death. But his love for his heavenly Father was paramount...his will be done on earth as in heaven. May I also say in my trials: “Your will be done, Lord.”
