16Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
22And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, "Far be it from you, Lord! This shall never happen to you."
I am often intrigued by Peter. One moment calling Him the Christ, and the next, rebuking Him. How could Peter do that.
Then I look at me. Haven't I accepted Him as Lord of my life? Don't I confess Him as Christ. So why is it that I often want to rebuke Him? Isn't that what I do every time I take matters into my own hands? If He is Lord, He should be in control. If I confess He is Christ, don't I also confess that I am not?
Aren't I just like Peter, walking on the water, looking around and seeing all the turmoil, and starting to sink. I need to see Him as more than just my Savior, I need Christ.
