It's Day 5 and we're in Mark 1.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 40 - "If you are willing" - I think a lot of people doubt whether God wants to help them. They've messed up too much or they've wandered too far, they think. And yet the truth is that God is always willing.
- Verses 17-20 - Because Mark tells stripped-down versions of these stories and moves through scenes quickly, this sounds like Jesus walks up to total strangers, tells them to follow Him, and they do it. We know from other gospels, though, that Jesus had talked to them before.
