Bible Reading Day 61

Day 61 – Mark 8:22-38

Read online.

Good morning!
What is your viewpoint? Today’s reading is all about viewpoints. First we have a man whose blindness is healed (gradually) so he can see again. Then we have Jesus asking the disciples for their viewpoint on who He is. Peter gives the well-known response “You are the Messiah.” Finally Jesus teaches His disciples about His approaching death, and Peter rebukes Him. But Jesus rebukes Peter, saying “you are seeing from a human point of view, not God’s.”

We all have viewpoints, and we saw yesterday how we can be mistaken or actively opposed to God in our viewpoint, so the question for us all is “Am I seeing from God’s viewpoint or a wrong viewpoint?”
