Re:Verse reading–Mark 8:27-38 (day two) “But who do you say that I am?” vs. 29b
In our reading last week Jesus condemned the Pharisees for saying things with their lips, but having a heart far from him (7:6). This week we read of a more personal encounter with his disciple. Those who know Jesus, who read about him, worship him, and place our hope in him; who do we say that he is? When asked to give an account for the savior, what is your answer. There is no equivocating. He either is or isn’t the Christ. Our hearts must be turned to him, and what flows from our mouths must reflect that dependency on Jesus. Check your heart, and let your praise flow.
