Peter is asked by Jesus this haunting phrase, which doesn’t seem hard to understand, but can be hard to swallow. God has shown His love; what’s our response?
Jesus makes a strange statement about people that call Him Lord, but He may not mean it or He may not believe it. How can we know for sure?
Many people have tried to predict that day or hour and all have failed. Some see the news and the scriptures like tea leaves and miss God’s call entirely.
What is Jesus talking about? I thought we are supposed to turn cheeks and love enemies, not buy swords and harm them. That can’t be what Jesus is saying, can it?
Harsh words of rejection it seems from Jesus, however it could also be a call to something greater. What does it mean to be all in, versus only halfway?
Resentment is a tough pill to swallow and it hurts us for more than the other person. God takes it further and believes it separates us from Him as well.
What does it mean to commit blasphemy and why is it unforgivable? Have we ever done this? What should we be doing with the Holy Spirit?
Talk about easier said than done. Does Jesus ask us to be the world’s punching bag or is there something more powerful to be found in this call?
