Wednesday, August 9: “Brave Belief”

Mark 8: 34, 35: “And [Jesus] summoned the crowd with His disciples and said to them, ‘If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the Gospel’s will save it.”


Take up your cross. Lose your life. Sounds ominous, no? Only Jesus could make this statement a positive thing, because at this point, only He understood how the Kingdom of God works. For everyone else, these had to be frightening words Yet they faced them, and remained with the Lord–as must anyone who would follow Him. The unbelieving love to label Christianity as a religion for cowards, but it takes courage to accept Jesus’ Gospel.
