Sermon Playback: Speaking of Satan

I preached this sermon three years ago on this weekend’s text (Matthew 16):

And for Christians, this may be our special temptation and our special sin. It is to refuse Jesus as he offers himself to us. It is to look for or hope for or expect a different Jesus than the one who comes to us. In Peter’s case, and I think in many of our cases–and I think most definitely in the case of someone like Mark Driscoll–it is to want a Jesus without a cross. A Jesus we can’t beat up.
