Mark 8:34-37 - “34 After calling the crowd together with his disciples, Jesus said to them, “All who want to come after me must say no to themselves, take up their cross, and follow me. 35 All who want to save their lives will lose them. But all who lose their lives because of me and because of the good news will save them. 36 Why would people gain the whole world but lose their lives? 37 What will people give in exchange for their lives?”
Remember a time when you were lost?
Remember that panicked feeling?
Even worse, remember losing a child or a pet, something for which you were responsible?
Pushing Boundaries - thinking I am safe, nothing could go wrong. Only to discover that we’re lost, alone, powerless to recover.
And then we remember that little word, “Help Me God!”
“Dad... Dad... Where are you Dad!”
