Mark 8:31-33, 34-38 March 4, 2015

Posted by Ventura Dreamer in Blogroll.

Jesus told his disciples how he would be tortured and killed. But when Peter told him he should try to avoid this path, Jesus rebuked him as he had done to the devil during temptation in the desert.

0ur worldly life can’t understand God’s ways much of the time. Jesus said we have to give up our lives in order to gain the life God promises. Sacrifice for others is what we should strive for. It’s what Jesus modeled.

The devotion writer tells of the time her husband was sick with leukemia and I can relate a bit with Sam’s recent critical time in the ICU. When there is nothing you can do but depend on others, particularly upon God’s grace, THAT’S when you appreciate life most!
