Want to read the Bible with me today? http://www.timhowey.com/2016/01/my-bible-reading-2016.html
First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Mark 8.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — Jesus feeds the 4000, rejects the Pharisees beliefs, is recognized as the Son of God, and calls His followers to pick up the cross.
- Doctrinal — Read at face value, Jesus’ words challenge every person’s beliefs and comfort zone: and God treats accepting the statements you don’t like as accepting Jesus personally (v.38).
- Inspirational — Lord, I accept verse 34 today. “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” Help me know how to LIVE that today!
