MARK 8:31-38

“If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it” (vv. 34-35).

I often struggle with the desire to protect myself from being taking advantage of versus my unwillingness to connect with people and become a source of blessing to them. When I struggle to communicate with people, I am surprised when I receive positive feedback about my actions in their lives. Yet even amid my own confusion, I see God moving the mountains in my life and other people’s lives.

God, open my eyes to your mighty work. Let me be an instrument of change for your glory. AMEN.
