Tasty Treats ...

Found some tasty treats recently:

Studying Mark 8:11-21. Both the Pharisees and the disciples don't get the feeding of the four thousand:

To the Pharisees stubborn verdict on Jesus already (Mark 3), We see that:

1. Jesus presence is sufficient (for us to know who he is)

To the Disciples immediate self concern, We see that:

2. Jesus identity is clear

It is blindingly obvious but they need a miracle to see it. They need healing of their spiritual blindness. This word says to us:

Have we already decided who Jesus is? (Stubborn Pride)

Are we too concerned with our own wellbeing to see who Jesus is? And especially the astounding claim his worksmake about him? (Introversion)

If so we need to heed what we learn here and look to the Jesus come into human history to be the bread of life for us. Him who by taking our judgement on the cross and gives us life in his resurrection if we turn to him.

Don't be blind.
