Day 8

Mark 8, John 8

  • Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to saving yourself, your true self.  What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you?  What could you ever trade your soul for?  Mark 8:35-37 {The Message} – how often do I try to do it all on my own?  that I would daily die to self and replace me with Jesus
  • Jesus said, "You're tied down to the mundane; I'm in touch with what is beyond your horizons. You live in terms of what you see and touch. I'm living on other terms.  I told you that you were missing God in all this. You're at a dead end. If you won't believe I am who I say I am, you're at the dead end of sins. You're missing God in your lives."   John 8:23-24 {The Message} – how often do I focus on the mundane? and miss the bigger work that God is doing?  God…I don’t want to miss you!  Open my eyes!
