For the third time, Jesus explains to his closest disciples how he’s going to be betrayed, executed, and then raised from the dead as part of God’s plan to save the world. Once again, the disciples fail to grasp what he’s saying. But a humble blind beggar gets it. This week, Jesus will show us in Mark 10:32-52 all how he can heal our spiritual blindness, bringing us to peace with God and each other. Pray for fruit this Sunday.
Pray for Justice and Peace
It has been an incredibly hard week. And it has been impossible to process all of the events, responses, and underlying factors. I did my best to lay out how I saw things on Sunday, and I may speak to things again. But for now I will lean into God’s mercy, be quiet, and call us to pray. Pray for justice. Pray for peace. Pray Jesus to the hearts and minds of the world.
