I spent some time this morning reading in Mark 8. Verses 31 through 38 really jumped out at me. I have to think that Peter meant well when he took Jesus to the side and began to rebuke Him. And yet, what was Peter thinking to rebuke the Son of God? Jesus' words to Peter were extremely strong "Get behind me, Satan!" he said. "You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men."
- Do I have in mind the things of God? If so, what are they?
- Am I thinking only of myself?
- How am I denying myself to follow Jesus?
- Have I given Him my life today?
