Defining the Messiah
The disciples, along with many others, had a specific view of the Messiah and how He should look. Many thought He would come as a warrior king to fight off the oppressors. However, Jesus clarified what it truly meant to be the Messiah and the true cost of following Him. May we be willing to deny ourselves, take up our crosses, and follow Him wherever He leads.
Scripture: Mark 8:31-9:1
