Cost Analysis: What It Means to Follow the Messiah

Scripture: Mark 8:27-38
Message: Cost Analysis: What It Means to Follow the Messiah
Rev. Kelly Vander Woude

Our sermon today centers around Jesus’s conversation with, not only the crowd that followed him, but really around Peter and his understanding of what it means to be the “Messiah.” What is really interesting about this conversation, this teaching moment, is just how spot – on Peter is and yet how completely far off he is as well. It is a good challenge for us today. To reflect on what it truly means to declare who Christ is, AS WELL AS follow his lead.
