RE Verse reading–Matthew 16:13-26 (day four) “From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he MUST go to Jerusalem and suffer many things . . .and that he MUST be killed and on the third day be raised to life.” (vs 21) There is a dark side of the moon. I am not sure why, but there is a side we never see. The moon is like God. There is a side of Him that we rarely see (or don’t want to). For most of my life, the Spirit of God has been a source of salvation,peace and joy. Gradually, I’ve come to see the side of Him that is a source of pain and loss. His holy wrath and unspeakable love required Christ to die. God calls me to join Him, to carry a cross, to suffer and serve. It is a dark message. I don’t always want to see it (neither did Peter), but I MUST!
