Look and Listen (Mark 9:1–13)

So much of contemporary Christianity aims at having joy, but with no willingness to pay for it. We want jubilation without crucifixion. We crave success stories while ardently avoiding stories about suffering. We want coronation without the cross. In other words, most Christians are just like the disciples of whom Mark so faithfully wrote. We are selective in our listening. We tune out the hard sayings of Jesus while tuning in to his happier sayings. But as Mark seeks to instruct us from this passage, we need to get a good look at Jesus, and then, we need to carefully listen to him. When we do, we will live as he intends.
