  • Kent felker
    it frightens me.......because I have not put all things away so I can follow him
  • Lee Sluder
    This world certainly struggles with the last verses of this chapter. Satan offers so many things to get the lost to stay blinded to the light of Christ. No wonder so many die and goto hell instead of Heaven. If a man doesn't want anything to do with the Lord in this world, how can he ever expect to live and serve God in Heaven.

    Jesus models the heart and will of the father at all times. He always has compassion, as he teaches the disciples and us how to follow. Precept on precept.

    Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

    31 And he began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. (yes, a lot of sickness,

    earth is not supposed to be sin free- devil ever rules in earthly things; our bodies are a cloak not our souls; we should study bible and live not of the world but according to word of god; no sign of the everlasting will appear until end of time; treat people fairly do not cheat people out of their possessions for self exploitation and fame

    Verse 38~We must be proud to be followers of Christ because as this verse shows if we are ashamed of him, he will be ashamed of us when he comes to judge all of the earth.
  • Servant of God
    What was it that Jesus fed the multitude with but faith in God and Eternity, that God will sustain us if we believe that the flesh body we inhabit is but a cloke, and a means to demonstrate our faith in real time, in the heat of battle, as it were, with all the temptation, lies, and hypocrisy which distract us and surround us in these extreme times in which we find ourselves. Do not succumb, dont
  • A disciple
    "And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation." If it was an unworthy generation when Jesus was here, with all their hatred and hostility and contradiction against Him; what does THIS dried out old rotten tree think that God should care to give any of them a sign? What blindness!

    Verse 2: Jesus had true compassion for the crowd and it moved him to fulfill their need for food.

    @ Allotey Study your Bible faith comes from hearing
  • A servant
    Harden not your heart but believe in Him who has power over you, who can save and who can tthrust into hell. Yea, fear him for the devil rules on earth. God is in control and Jesus is not on walking amongst us on earth. He was hear to establish the Truth about life and death. Now it is up to us. Our faith is up to us, what we say, what we do, who we are is up to us! God has establised TRUTH
  • A disciple
    "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (cont.) Keeping in the context of the Lord's teaching here; what is profitable for us is to save our souls through God's mercy and grace, and not have false beliefs concerning this life's worth. This world IS NOT God's final and very good plan for us for eternity; and its real condition is seen by the cross.
  • Allotey Emmanuel
    How can someone build his her faith in christ
  • A disciple
    "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Even while reading the part where Jesus said this, the tendency of many of us is to isolate this sentence and let it just mean "generally" as if our biggest worry should be wanting to be a billionaire!
  • A disciple
    "And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation." We are in the time of "Many False Prophets" and "Many Who Will Come in [JESUS'] Name And Will Deceive Many." And they find an audience! As much as it makes us mad knowing about them God is proving the people if they will obey or not.
  • A disciple
    "And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town." Amos 5:13 "Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time." Some suppose that Jesus did all His miracles for a show, and for advertising His power; ignoring the facts about the people whose hearts were hostile toward Him, that they weren't worthy to hear any more.
  • A disciple
    "How is it that ye do not understand?" To those who oppose and contradict, there IS NO SIGN GIVEN; but to us who believe and follow Jesus, "Blessed are your eyes, for they see;" and ALL THINGS THAT THE FATHER HAS GIVEN TO JESUS, HE MAKES KNOWN TO US. Why do the haters of the Lord seek a sign, when they have no heart for it? And why do those with eyes to see, so easily act as if they didn't know?
  • Joyce Ballentine
    JESUS HAD TO REBUKE PETER, ONE OF HIS DISCIPLES CAUSE PETER DID NOT UNDERSTAND AT THIS POINT HIS TRUE PURPOSE IN DYING FOR OUR SINS! REBUKING IS PART OF BEING DISCIPLED BY GOD SO WE CAN LEARN TO LIVE AND DO BETTER CAUSE OF THIS SINFUL NATURE! HOW CAN WE BE A DISCIPLE WITHOUT DISCIPLINE??? NOBODY LIVING IN THIS WORLD GETS EVERYTHING RIGHT ALL THE TIME! Hebrews 12:11 "No DISCIPLINE seems pleasant a

    Verse 38 says if we are ashamed of Jesus then he will be ashamed of us when it comes time for him to render judgement.
  • Michael C.
    "And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation." Many lost men seek signs today from the Lord, guessing about all kinds of strange things, and then tryimng to say that prophecies are being fulfilled; but Jesus said no sign will be given to them, but of His death and resurrection.

    Jesus has full of Compassion when he saw the crowd. What a loving Father to his children he will make sure that we are provided by bread and fishes to eat. In life a bread is his words that when we are filled by his words and obey them we have life in abundance. Jesus the only Jehovah Jireh the Provider, the Healer and Peace . Thank you Jesus for the blood you shed for us there's no one like you
  • JOERIZA
    yea, this is true we should be prepare to our souls
  • Crystal
    Take this world and give me Jesus!

    Jesus has appointed time to heal us and bless us. It doesnt matter if two times he heal the two eyes of a man there is a purpose. He want the man to go out to the town and spread the good news that he was healed by Jesus. Jesus wants us to receive his words for his words has life. When we chose to follow Jesus we must also obey his words we must do what he says just what he says to the blind man
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Compassion for people in need is a lesson here in Mark 8.
    V. 36 "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his soul?"
  • Pastor Sylvia
    Here, the Lord shows us that selfishness is not the way of His Kingdom. To re rely and depend on Him is the only way to everlasting peace and life.
