Sunday Devotional: You are the Christ

Rate this post

We are beset with ills, secular and church.
Here’s a reminder of what’s really important.
Jesus loves us this much

Mark 8:27-35

Jesus and his disciples set out
for the villages of Caesarea Philippi.
Along the way he asked his disciples,
“Who do people say that I am?”
They said in reply,
“John the Baptist, others Elijah,
still others one of the prophets.”
And he asked them,
“But who do you say that I am?”
Peter said to him in reply,
You are the Christ.
Then he warned them not to tell anyone about him.

He began to teach them
that the Son of Man must suffer greatly
and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes,
and be killed, and rise after three days.
He spoke this openly.
Then Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.
At this he turned around and, looking at his disciples,
rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan.
You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.”

He summoned the crowd with his disciples and said to them,
“Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself,
take up his cross, and follow me.
For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for my sake
and that of the gospel will save it.”

Keep your eyes fixed on Him.
I will be with you always
May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,
~Éowyn

  1. Such a good thing to read this morning, Dr. Eowyn. Thank you.

     
  2. Jesus told Peter, “Blessed are you, Peter. None but the Holy Ghost has revealed this to Thee.” Then later, Peter tells Christ, “Lord, I will not let them do this to Thee,” and Christ rebuked Peter.
    Our Lord forsaw Peter’s lukewarmness but chose him as the Rock upon which to found His Church. He did not wait for Peter to perfect himself first.
    I must do the same. I know I’m not perfect. And you know what? IT GALLS ME.

     
  3. When Christ said “I am the Truth” He meant exactly that. Truth does express itself literally.
    And those who bring the Truth to others know, it is a path that requires self sacrifice. Always.
    You have to have a love of Christ to do that. Lord knows, there really is no benefit, to Self, for promoting Truth.

     
  4. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this beautiful post setting forth the Reading from the Liturgy of the Word for Sunday’s Mass. I love the pictures of Jesus. They are very tender and full of love.
