he passage in
today’s gospel
where Peter tells Jesus that
he is the Christ, the anointed Messiah of God, is usually considered to be a pivotal one. 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
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.
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
“national treasure”
status. The cross
that is at the heart
of our faith is too
severe a symbol
for a world that is
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!

“Save a Life”
Mayor of Mold, Councillor Anthony Parry, has
chosen Welsh Hearts (http://welshhearts.org/)
as his main charity initiative for his year in
office. Welsh Hearts working alongside the
Town Council, St John Ambulance (http://
www.sja.org.uk/sja/default.aspx )
and the
community of Mold will endeavour to “Save a
Life” in the town, by raising sufficient funds
during Cllr. Parry’s Mayoral term to place at
least 25 defibrillators at key locations in the
town and raise the awareness of as many
community volunteers as possible to use the
equipment, together with CPR and other key
life saving techniques.
Welsh Hearts have very kindly donated to
Mold Town Council their first defibrillator for
the campaign.
