Life is great right? Let's see we have school, work, school, work, sleep, eat, school, and work. Wait. It seems like something is missing. Yes, something is missing and I was reminded of it today at church during the sermon. Today's Gospel reading was from Mark 8:27-35. Now you don't have to get your Bibles out unless you really want to, I think I can sum it up.
In this section Jesus poses the question "Who do they say that I am?" Well, there are lots of answers such as John ht Baptist, Elijah, and a prophet. I like next question that He asks: who do you say that I am? What a great question. Who is Jesus? Well, there are many texts throughout the Bible to know who Jesus is. God says, "This is my beloved Son. Listen to Him" (Mk 9:7, Mt 17:5). There are also many descriptions in the Old Testament, so we know exactly who Jesus is. He even tells us that He is the Son of Man and will suffer greatly and die, then in three days rise. Needless to say, we know who Jesus is.
i really love their music it really lifts up my spirit. I am on a high school soccer team and almost all of girls are non christian so it is really hard for me. But I alwasy remeber your song million voices and I try and be that voice that maybe one of them will hear. God works in awesome ways.
One night a my youth group my friend sung Never Alone by of course the BarlowGirls, and when I got home I heard the song on the christian music channel on tv. Ever since I have been a BIG FAN!
I can relate to their songs in every way...and when I need that little push I just listen to their songs and I get a sense that God is always with me, even when I can't see him...I can trust the unseen.
