Mark: Day 16 - I Get It!
This 30 Days Series will lead us to Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe by taking a look at the Gospel of Mark.
The Word - "And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.”” Mark 8:27-29 ESV
A Thought - Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Peter got it! Do we get it? Jesus was not just a good person, a holy man, a priest, or miracle worker. Yes, He was all of those things, but more importantly, He was the One that all of Israel awaited. He was the answer to man's inability to get right with God. He was the Anointed One. Peter got it.
With all this talk lately of high profile people losing their salvation, or walking away from God, I have but one thing to say. If you really get it. If you really understand who Jesus is, walking away is not a possibility for you.
A Prayer - Lord, I ask that every day you take me deeper in the knowledge of You. Impress upon my heart the magnitude of Your sacrifice for my sin. Fill me with the fortitude to stand firm in the face of foolish philosophies. I get it and I owe that to You.- In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
