Lessons from Mark (3)

I watched a TV show where people had to live off the land. They had to make their own shelter and hunt for their food. The people involved in this adventure made many changes in their lives. They had to give up some personal comforts in order to survive.
Verse 12 of our Bible Reading tells us that the twelve apostles talked about Jesus. Then they told the people that they should “change their hearts and lives.”
When we follow Jesus and change our lives, we need to give up the comforts of sin. Then we will be living for Jesus and ready to live forever with God.
I hope you are willing to give up everything — even your own life — so you can follow Jesus. Look closely at your life today. Find areas of sin in your life and ask God to forgive you and help you change.
