Bible in 90 Days - Day 71

Today's reading covered Mark 1 through 9. So far, there is very little in Mark that is not covered in either Matthew or Luke. There is a parable of the growth of a seed, a sermon about evil coming from the heart, and two healings that are unique to Mark.

I've noticed in many of the healing miracles that Jesus is asking people to have faith before they are healed. He will ask them if they believe Jesus can heal them. Or He will ask them to rise up and walk. When the person makes the effort to rise, that is when they are healed. We can't just ask miracles of God without having faith that He will perform them. It is when we believe that we begin to see Him working in our lives.
