MM4 Stars Out Of 5Great but ha a few misinterpretationsOctober 3, 2014MMI really love this devotional. My son is 11 and my daughter is 9. They both dove right into it. It is just long enough to keep them interested in God's word and it is quite humorous. They really feel like the Bible can be read even at their age. The Bible didn't seem like such a mountain of pages for grown ups anymore. They really felt like the Bible is for them too. And it helps bring things into their daily walk.
There are just a few misinterpretations. One is so major and quite disappointing so I will absolutely point it out. The others are meaningless so they are not even worth mentioning.
In devotion 9, 4th paragraph, 3rd sentence, The devotional says "Peter would one day become the rock of Jesus' church". What blasphemy! JESUS IS THE ROCK OF HIS CHURCH, AND THE ONLY ROCK OF THE CHURCH!!! Matthew 16:18 says "upon this rock I will build My church". "This rock" is NOT referring to Peter but to the revelation that Peter had of Jesus being the Christ, the Son of the living God- Matthew 16:16. Further more there are many other versus to back up the proper interpretation:
Deut. 32:4, "The Rock! His work is perfect, for all His ways are just; a God of faithfulness and without injustice."
2 Sam. 22:2-3, "The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; 3 My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge."
Psalm 18:31, "And who is a rock, except our God."
Isaiah 44:8, "Is there any God besides Me, or is there any other Rock? I know of none."
Rom. 9:33, "Behold, I lay in Zion a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense, and he who believes in Him will not be disappointed."
How can anyone really uplift Peter to that unshakable level anyways? Peter denied the Lord 3 times when The Lord was being delivered to the cross. Whay kind of "rock" is that? Peter was a disciple yet a fallen human being just like the rest of us. Only Jesus had the qualifications to become the Rock. He is perfect and lived the perfect human life and died as the perfect Lamb of God without blemish. And He alone is qualified to be the Rock, and the Cornerstone! Through His death He went from being the only begotten to the Firstborn among many brothers and to all who believe into HIM, they all have the right to become children of God (John 3:16, John 1:12-13). Peter did NOT have a single one of those qualifications to be anything except a brother to the Firstborn and a member of the Body of Christ. And that is only because the Father was merciful to Peter and revealed the fact that Jesus is the Christ and the Son of the living God (Matt 16:17). May the Lord be merciful to you in the same way.
Parents, you should always read any devotional before you give it to your child. Even the most trusted ones. We are all a work in progress. Beware of uplifting anyone except for Jesus. After all He is the only One who died to take away our sins and re-established our access to the tree of life. The rest of us fall short of God's glory even the disciples.
