RE Verse reading–Mark 6:45-52; 8:1-21 (day three)
“Don’t you remember?” (8:18)  From time to time, scarce food became plenteous.  Fierce storms would recede.  Those who witnessed Jesus pushing back on what they saw as a cold and menacing universe thought that surely here was someone worth following.  But they had it wrong.  Jesus was not winning an occasional skirmish with a cruel cosmos.  He was Maker of heaven and earth.  If they would pay attention, they would see that he carried himself as a man who knew intimately everything about “summer and winter and springtime and harvest; sun, moon and stars in their courses above.”  Jesus is unafraid of this universe because it is his.  Here is someone worth following indeed—not because he bullies the universe into submission, but because he is its Maker, its Lord.  And yours.
