Friday Epistle for Sept 1 2017

September 1st, 2017 by Gabriel Ipasu

The Cross authenticates and Defines our Discipleship
After brilliantly identifying Jesus as the Messiah, and Son of God, Peter scores terribly poor by missing to correctly respond to another very important revelation from the Lord. He is severely rebuked and asked to get behind and obviously think well.
This incident must have questioned Peter's understanding of Jesus as the Messiah and the Son of God. It also revealed that Peter and the rest of the disciples fundamentally struggled to identify Jesus with Sacrifice, suffering and death of the cross. It was an incomplete or even distorted understanding of the messiah that did not want sacrifice, the cross and the love of one's enemies on the picture. Are we better than Peter today with our today's culture? What can we learn from Peter?
See you Sunday,
Father Gabriel
