TODAY (Green)Jer 20: 7-9; Rom 12:1-2; Mt 16:21-27

NEXT WEEK (Green) Ez 33:7-9; Rom 13:8-10; Mt 18;15-20

No wonder Peter rebukes Jesus! Jesus “began to show his disciples” what faithful discipleship demands: denying self, losing self, letting self die. Jesus teaches his disciples to let go of self so that a new self can be given. What we relinquish is ourselves as we are now; what we care is a new self born from identifying completely with Jesus. It takes a lifetime of discipleship to embrace Jesus’ way of living. It takes a lifetime of discipleship to let Jesus transform our life into his.
