The Gospel of Mark 8:27-38
Jesus didn’t come to save us from our circumstances. He came to save us from our sins. Once we are saved, He wants us to and calls us to participate and co-operate with Him in what He is doing. Like Jesus, we must be willing to live a life similar to His—a life of serving, suffering, and sacrifice—not to add to anyone’s salvation, but to lead others to salvation. This is where the life that is truly life is found—in being a disciple of Jesus, The Messiah.
