St. John's Franklin Podcast

Michael McGhee preached a sermon entitled “Repentance” for The Second Sunday in Lent on March 1, 2015.  Jesus’ rebuke of Peter, “Get behind me Satan!” is one of the harshest statements in the New Testament, but there is something more than anger in His words to Peter. Jesus’ rebuke is actually an invitation to repentance, a statement made to point Peter in the direction of the Cross. Repentance is more than confession, it is “an true encounter with the reality that I am loved by God and even through I may not feel it and others may not see it, God deems me worthy to be loved. (Bolz-Weber)”
