Reading God’s Word: Mark 15; Proverbs 9:1-18

Memorizing God’s Word: Mark 8:34 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

Meditating on God’s Word: Mark 15:15 Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.

Praying God’s Word: “Lord, how often do I do things “to satisfy the crowd”? May that not be true of my life and action. I want to live my life surrendered to you and all that you have for. Give me the courage to stand up for what is right and to go against the crowd when the time comes. Amen.”
