Cost of the Cross: Concede My Comfort
This Sunday we are continuing our Lenten Series titled, Cost of the Cross: Concede My Comfort. In this sermon we will discover how sometimes we must forgo our comfort to be true followers.
Preacher: Pastor Bill Lyle
Matthew 16:21-24 (NCV)
Jesus Says that He Must Die
From that time on Jesus began telling his followers that he must go to Jerusalem, where the Jewish elders, the leading priests, and the teachers of the law would make him suffer many things. He told them he must be killed and then be raised from the dead on the third day.
“Peter took Jesus aside and told him not to talk like that. He said, ‘God save you from those things, Lord! Those things will never happen to you!’ Then Jesus said to Peter, ‘Go away from me, Satan! You are not helping me! You don’t care about the things of God, but only about the things people think are important.’ Then Jesus said to his followers, ‘If people want to follow me, they must give up the things they want. They must be willing even to give up their lives to follow me.’”
