Stumbling Blocks

September 07, 2023

Last week we considered Peter’s confession of faith as recorded in Matthew 16. We discussed the time and place where he made that confession and how his words were very inflammatory in that context. Peter’s was a bold declaration by which he clearly sided with God’s values over and against the dominant culture of his time. This week, we follow with what comes next in the story. Peter, the very one who was so brave just before, begins to cave into the fears and anxieties of his culture. Might we be the same? This message reflects on these themes.
