Mark 10

Good Morning grown up little children.  Today we are in Mark 10.  

“Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tell me so”!  Little children hear and believe, that’s it.  As children they have not yet been poisoned by the yeast of the Pharisees.  To put it in terms we understand, they have not been corrupted by the worlds alternative way of thinking - so, they just believe.  The older we get, the more we “think” we know.  We listen to arguments that set themselves up against the truth of Jesus.  “Don’t be deceived bad company corrupts good intentions.”  1 Corinthians 15:33  The world around us falls into this category.     Let’s be honest, we know that progressively we begin to think like those we surround ourselves with, listen to, or are taught by.  We don’t always have a choice - we’re immersed in a world of twisted thinking!  Unless we are daily renewing our mind with that Truth of Gods Word - we are in danger of getting off track!  Romans 12:2  It will happen, don’t be deceived!

“Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭3‬:‭18‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Children just believe until they are convinced of something different.  In this way we need to stay true to what we KNOW because it’s written on our hearts!  We need to constantly be in The Word to make sure we’re tracking - It’s no longer an option.

This whole chapter deals with thinking too much - wanting it our way.  Divorce, Childlike Faith, Wealth before Jesus, even special Position in Heaven.  This chapter really reads like, “I want what I want.”  In contrast while everyone else was trying to figure a way around Jesus commands, Bartimaeus the Blind man cried out for Jesus.  

Dig in and KNOW for yourself!  Love You All!
