Commentary: Mark 8:27-33
Then Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. At this he turned around and, looking at his disciples, rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me Satan. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.”
Jesus, in this same gospel Peter rightly identifies you as the Son of God but he can’t reconcile who you are with the reality of the cross. How often do I make the same error in my approach to life? Help me to recognize you in the contradictions of each day, and to see them as an opportunity to identify with you.
