My Hour Has not Yet Come

We have the same problem, the same sin as Peter. We want the glory without the suffering. We want to prove our worth and love for God in what we do for Him. But doesn't that break the First Commandment and make us out to be a god before the one true God? Doesn't that reject our God-given station and vocation in life as His Baptized children and heirs?

God the Father makes the point, showing the absurdity of Peter's offer of worship:
He was still speaking when, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him."
