This week we will walk through Mark 9:14-50, where Jesus continues to remind his disciples of his impending death and resurrection. Messiah dead and raised again? It’s a concept and an act of humility that they can’t seem to grasp just yet… Jesus teaches on the importance of prayer in building up an imperfect faith, as we struggle with self-reliance, through a riveting and heart breaking story of one father’s journey of pain and struggle. These passages are full of lessons on humility, service and radical discipleship. I encourage you to read the passage prior to coming this weekend, and pray for an increase in faith as we all journey on in an uncertain world while navigating the real struggles of faith, self-reliance, and pride. How are we to deal with all of this?
