Weekly "Call To Worship" Encouragement


For this call to worship we will be reading from Mark Chapter 8:

27 Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?”

28 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”

29 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

30 Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.

31 He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.

33 But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan!” he said. “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”

We are here this morning to worship the Lord.  Who is he?  He isn’t John the Baptist.  He isn’t one of the prophets.  He is the Messiah, He is the Christ.  God’s One and Only Son was anointed to accomplish God’s will.  As Jesus said to the Father (John 17:4), “I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.”


What was the work to be done?  He suffered and died on a cross, and after three days, he rose again, so our sins could be forgiven, so we can have eternal life.

Suffering and dying, on a cross, was the ONLY way to do God’s will, to bring Him glory.  Peter didn’t understand.  Peter probably had a different Messiah in mind, a political king who would reestablish the Kingdom of Israel and kick the Romans out, not a Messiah that would suffer, not a Messiah that would die.

Peter was rightfully rebuked, because the cross was the ONLY way, the Messiah must accomplish His work.  And we are here to worship because God loves us that much.  John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Let’s pray together: Father in Heaven we worship you.  Lord, we worship you.  Your plan is perfect, your plan is merciful, your plan is loving, and we are so thankful to be your children.  We worship you now.  Thank you for the cross.  Help us to take up our crosses and follow Jesus.  Help us to deny self, and live for you.  May our worship be pleasing to you now and throughout the week.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.
