How do your preconceived ideas affect the way you follow Jesus?

By Dan Moose

Those ideas that you accepted from others or you formed Dan cropped 4.13beforehand without all or at least adequate information.   We all have them.  Jesus shows us how he dealt with some of Peter’s preconceived
ideas.   Look at Matthew 16:15-23,

He (Jesus) said to them,“But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it  …… 21 From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.  22 And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, “Far be it from you, Lord!  This shall never happen to you.” 23 But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.
