It's Day 1 and we're in Mark 1.
Welcome to the first day of our new round of "60IN60." If you haven't gotten the sheet of all the readings for the 60 days, you can download a PDF here.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 35 - If it was important to Jesus to get away from everyone to have time in prayer, how much more do I need it?
- Verse 8 - "baptize you with the Holy Spirit" - That simply means that through Jesus we will receive the Holy Spirit for power in life.
- Verses 16-18 - Jesus had talked to them before. This kind of makes it sound like He just walked up to someone He'd never met.
- Verse 24, 34, 44 - Why didn't Jesus want the demons or the healed people telling who He was? The best answer I've heard is that He was trying to control the timetable and didn't want things to get too big and provoke the final confrontation with the Pharisees too early. Additionally, He knew that faith that came from seeing miracles was often a shallow faith.
