Reading along with us in Mark? Here’s today’s reading:

Mark 9 (ESV)

And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.”

2 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 3 and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. 4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5 And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6 For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. 7 And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” 8 And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only...Continue Reading

  1. 50Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”

    I’ve noticed verses 49 and 50 talk a lot about salt and other parts of the Bible even say we are the salt of the earth, but what exactly does this mean? What does is mean to be salty?

  2. It is very interesting how Jesus started revealing his future self to the disciples. First to just a few of them, then to the rest after he come down off the mountain. I found the verses on temptation of sin to be challenging when Jesus talk about cutting off your hand or feet to keep yourself form sinning. I know this is not meant to be taken literately but to show how God feeling about us falling into temptation of sin.

  3. Oh to be a fly on the wall for the transfiguration and see the true glory of Jesus’ divine nature and see Moses and Elijah as well. Although we will see it all in heaven, it would still be neat to see it on the mountain.

    And what a great interaction with Jesus and the father of the boy with the evil Spirit. I love the question Jesus asks, “If I can?” How often do I interact with Him in this way. And then His answer? “Everything is possible for him who believes.” And what should be our greatest and most consistent prayer….help my unbelief. Is it true that every problem we have boils down to a lack of faith? That is what I am meditating on.

    And what are the disciples focusing on in the light of this great Savior…which of us is the greatest, who is your favorite? It is so sad it is funny…..
