For it means that to a degree the penny has dropped. Although everyone seems to recognise that Jesus is someone special, like Elijah, John the Baptist or another prophet come back from the dead, Peter puts his finger on the truth and is quickly told by Jesus not to go around telling others about it. It’s easy to say, “You are the Christ”. But faith in Jesus is about more than just words. It’s about adjustment: adjustment in the way we think, the way we behave, the way we relate to God. That’s because believing in Christ turns our lives upside-down. And this adjustment is not just a fine-tuning; it’s a somersault. For following Jesus does not mean doing FINE-TUNING? the same as everyone else except that we throw in a few hymns and prayers from time to time. It means having a radically different outlook on why we are here on this earth, what this demands of us and what we expect of the next world. The values of God’s kingdom are not simply refine- ments of ordinary human goodness. In fact, they are often diametrically opposed to what society in general considers to be desirable. That’s why Christians talk about sacrifice, about bearing a cross daily, about self -denial, about serving rather than being served, about putting ourselves always in second place, about disregarding the reputation others credit us with and about giving till it hurts rather than seeking to receive. A ll of this is countercultural. Those with no faith either pity us as mugs or else they look upon us a quaint bunch of dogooders. The worse thing Christianity could ever do is to make a bid for popularity, for social respectab ilit y or for “national treasure” status. The cross that is at the heart of our faith is too severe a symbol for a world that is self-reliant. A t the very instant that Peter professed his faith in Jesus as Messiah, Jesus told him that he would suffer grievously, be rejected, and be put to death. This is what it means to follow Christ. Both Jesus and Peter travelled the same route to glory and there is no reason to suppose that any presentday follower of Christ will be spared the well-trodden path. Thank God it’s a path to glory!
