’13 RBY – READ the BIBLE in a YEAR – Day # 10 – Today’s Scripture 1 Samuel 10 / Mark 8
Mark 8:34,35 [NLT] Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. 35 If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.
It’s not a secret, I’ve mentioned it before, sometimes it’s feels a little like a broken record. I have a hard time getting to “all”. [Mark 12:30] And you must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’
Here’s my thoughts for what they are worth. Jesus calls us to be FOLLOWERS, before he invites us to be DISCIPLES.
Today ALL Jesus is asking of me is to turn from my selfish ways, take up my cross, and to follow him.
Today I’m FOLLOWING JESUS and I’m going to let JESUS get me to ALL.
