What’s their Point?

RE Verse reading–Mark 6:45-52, 8:1-21 (day five)
What was it the disciples didn’t “see”? What was it they didn’t “hear”? What was it they didn’t “understand”? What was it they didn’t “remember”? What was it they were missing? They stopped at the point of “what” Jesus was doing instead of “Who” He is? They were perceiving Him as a “cosmic waiter”, there to meet their own needs and demands. (Sounds so much like American Christianity these days) In this passage, Jesus is trying to get them to see that the bigger lesson was on the power, compassion, and generosity of the living God. In scripture the “what” (God does) is designed to teach and point to the “Who” (He is). The goal of this perspective is a personal, growing, intimate relationship with God, where we discover more about His nature, character, and kindness. I’m asking Him to help me learn (see, hear, understand, and remember) a little more about Him every day!!
