The Rev. Patrick Schlabs | Mark 8:31-38

Everyone wants to be a winner. Often we identify ourselves by our affiliation with the “winning side,” whether it’s in sports, politics, or ideologies. Jesus’ ministry appeared to his followers as the opening scenes of a huge win, a victory that would lead to his coronation and Israel’s restoration. When, in chapter eight of Mark’s Gospel, Jesus speaks of suffering and dying, and exhorts his disciples to take up crosses, his apparent winning is turned upside down. What does this show us about God’s reign and the believer’s life? Join Patrick Schlabs as he peers into the mystery of the cross, and there finds an identity stronger than the power of death.
