(A reflection on Matthew 16:13-23)
Poor Peter. Jesus gives him the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven for affirming that He is the Messiah. Then, He rebukes Peter for presuming to know more about God’s will than He does. Just when Peter thought he understood, he discovered he really didn’t.
That’s me, too. I think I understand this business of faith but then I get challenged anew and realize I have a lot to learn.
I’m okay with that.
“Lord, You have created in me a clean heart (PS 51:12) on which You have written Your law (Jer 31:33). Lead me, Lord, and help me to follow. Amen.”
