Sunday Bible Message- The Cross and Self-Denial

Matthew 16:21-27
Jesus Foretells His Death and Resurrection

From that time on, Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and undergo great suffering at the hands of the elders and chief priests and scribes and be killed and on the third day be raised. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him saying, 'God forbid it Lord! This must never happen to you' But he turned and said to Peter, 'Get behind me, Satan! You are stumbling-block to me; for you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things'.

The Cross And Self-Denial

Then Jesus told his disciples, 'If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their life? Or what will they give in return for their life?'

'For the Son of Man is to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay everyone for what has been done. Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his Kigndom'.

hi tey..how's the long weekend? i hope all is great..

thanks for sharing this messanges, though i am really guilty here because since i move here in USA i haven't went into sunday masses and just once prayed the rosary. but i watched live masses on the television the difference is that i can't take the body of christ so i was just praying intentionally and faithfully with HIM

I can only say Amen and Amen to these verses. We have to meditate on these timeless messages so that we will not be lost in this corrupted world. Thanks for the post. God bless you always my friend.
