    There’s always something new I learn about the Christmas story, and even when it’s not new, necessarily, there’s a different light – level of understanding that comes into the spotlight for me. This year was no different. I believe that His ministry on earth was geared towards teaching his disciples and making them understand why he came. I read the account when Jesus was talking to the disciples, who obviously had a different idea or agenda about what Messiah would represent, and how Jesus had to turn to Peter and tell him; “get behind me Satan”… It it mind boggling how with all the prophecies they had no idea exactly why Jesus had to come. Until, that is, the Holy Spirit opened their hearts and they finally got it. They thought they were getting a ruler and will rule the world. They were fighting about which “chair” everyone will have in God’s kingdom…. And Jesus said, we gotta go to Jerusalem where I’ll be killed, basically. Bam! Not what they expected…. yet when Peter said “God forbid those things should happen to you” and rebuked the Son of God! – I saw myself giving suggestions to God sometimes. I am so glad Jesus didn’t take Peter’s advice. I’m so glad he stuck to His plan. Almost wanna put it this way: God forbid, Peter I die and save your soul?” We sure do sound ridiculous when we try to tell God how to do His job. Happy New year, guys! Thanks again for a wonderful, meaningful episode!
