Listen to the good voice

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter said in reply, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Then he strictly ordered his disciples to tell no one that he was the Messiah. The First Prediction of the Passion. From that time on, Jesus began to show his disciples that he* must go to Jerusalem and suffer greatly from the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed and on the third day be raised. Then Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, “God forbid, Lord! No such thing shall ever happen to you.” He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle to me. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.” Matthew 16:15-23

Peter receives a great grace… God reveals to him that Jesus is the true Messiah… Moments later, Peter listen to the wrong voice and teaches Jesus… Then he hears: Get behind me, Satan! Jesus shows in this scene that we quickly reject temptations… It is interesting that Peter in a short time has two inspirations: good and bad… It shows how you need to be careful… You need constant prayer. In this way you and reject the temptation and listen to the good voice…
I ask you, Lord, you protect me from the temptations of satan.
