Lessons from Mark (5)

When I was young, I went to church with my parents and my brothers and sister. But we did not have a true relationship with Jesus. When we left the church building, we acted just like the rest of the world.
Years later I became a Christian, and I understood who Jesus really is. I realized that I was like the people in our Bible Reading today. Some thought Jesus was John the Baptizer come back to life. Other people thought Jesus was Elijah or some other prophet.
Now I know that it is more important to know that Jesus is the Son of God than to have fancy religious ideas. When I am filled with pride, I need to remember that Jesus can truly change us and make us new people who love and serve Him.
Do you really believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God? If you do, then live your life every day for Him.
