Re:Verse reading–Mark 8:27-38 (day four)
V. 27 – “Jesus went out, along with His disciples, to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way He questioned his disciples,”
In this chapter, Jesus begins to focus on His disciples. V. 27 says “and on the way…” Jesus was the model teacher. He took every opportunity to teach God’s ways. Often, we get so busy getting from one place to another, or from one job to the next, that we forget to model and teach those around us God’s Word. Jesus was investing His teaching in those who would carry on His message after He was gone.
We are called to do the same. We are to train the next generations to love God, to know His Word, to be faithful and obedient, and to serve God with a whole heart. If we want our children and grandchildren to walk in a manner worthy of God, then we must train them. It will not happen by accident. On the way…teach and train!
