"But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, 'Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.'” ~ Mark 8:33

 

Look at the people surrounding Jesus' crucifixion. Do we really believe we would have been different? How can we expect ourselves to have acted differently than them? Even Jesus' disciples deserted Him. Can we really expect ourselves to do better?

 

In time one truly learning of Christ and themselves will see he would have been a Peter, a Pilate, a Caiaphus or even Judas if he was there on that day.

 

Those twelve men were chosen by Jesus, yet when He rebuked Peter it was after looking at them all. He rebuked Peter because he was a representation of them all. The disciples came from among those who would eventually cry for Jesus' death. The Gospels are not just about God coming as a Man to save men. They are also about what man would do to God if he could get his hands on God.

 

My Bible tells me I am not mindful of heavenly things. I refuse to not believe that. For that reason I must be in the Word. Much of my Biblical poetry only exists because I read God's Word. It is not because I am a spiritual person. Like Isaiah I am a man of unclean lips. I live among like people.

 

The only thing we contribute to the Lord's salvation is our sin.

 

Praise the Lord for the revelation of His Word.
