Transition: Believe it or NOT Part 3 – Christ’s Disciples

6 07 2017

TransitionWe are in a series called Transition believe it or not! Today we will be looking at the transition of the disciples found in Matthew 16:21-23 as they heard the future and responded to the news of their transition.

Here is the text from Matthew 16:

21 From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.
22 And Peter took him and began to rebuke him, saying, “God forbid, Lord! This shall never happen to you.”
23 But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me; for you are not on the side of God, but of men.”


Clearly, they were in shock when Jesus told them what he was going to face as he went to apostlesJerusalem. They look at him as their Messiah, their Savior and how could this happen after all he was the Son of God. Still in shock, Peter who was probably the oldest of the disciples, spoke for the group rebuked him saying “God forbid, Lord! This shall never happen to you.”

Transition is tough and sometimes we, like the disciples are going to protest and even reject it. It takes time to get our heads around the idea of transition.  And sometimes even when we have time to accept the truth of transition when the time is upon us we will strike out as Peter did in the garden cutting off the guards ear, trying to control the chain of events which will cause the transition we know is suppose to happen.

Join me next time as we look at Jesus as he faces his transition in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Blessings & Complete Joy!
