I’ve spent a good portion of my week with some other pastors of other churches. We have been studying the book of Mark. It has been amazing to see how the disciples of Jesus just don’t get it. They saw Jesus feed thousands of people and then are worried because they forgot to bring bread on their trip (Mark 8:16-21). Jesus tells them that He is headed to Jerusalem to be killed and the disciples are talking about who is the greatest (Mark 9:33-34). They see Jesus heal the leper, raise a paralytic, calm the storm, walk on water, and grant sight to the blind. Yet, they all scatter from Jesus in His hour of greatest need (Mark 14:27-28).
Sigh, … I’m just like them.
