I am considering the exchange between Peter and Jesus kjv@Mark:8:32-33. Thinking of the manner in which Peter attempts to tell Jesus what is best. Well intentioned no doubt but misguided. In what ways am I doing the same? In my prayers? In my expectations? Well I should consider!
Todays reading helps to illustrate the large gap between how God see's things compared to how we see them. THe darkness that we are under is considerable. God must re-awaken Israel nearly every forty years, peace and prosperity puts the following generations to sleep, drives them to other gods. War drives them to their knees and back to His arms, and only war. By the time of Luke the re-awakening has ceased. Men are left to judge things as they see fit, yet they choose not to see things as they actually are. Given their destitute situation, what makes them think that they can accurately judge this obvious miracle worker of God - Jesus? Who are they fooling?
