First Suffering, Then Glory

Passage: Mark 8:38-9:13

Chronological Life of Jesus - 074 - (with reference to Matthew 16:28-17:13 and Luke 9:26-36) Jesus makes it very clear that He will suffer for our sake and that if we follow Him we are to expect the same. But lest we lose heart, we see a glimpse of His glory. Can we do as Jesus did, to look past the shame of the cross to the joy that awaited Him? In these times that question has taken on greater weight in our lives.
