Hymn 151, “The Savior Gently Calls”


God offers us liberty and peace in our lives.  The wonderful power of God. 

Mark 9:14-29 (especially 23-24).  The last chapter of Mark struggles with hardness of heart.  The mountain can be dealt with - with believing. 

Matthew 14, Jesus deals with people and their unbeliefs…if you, I, we believe.  A wrong spirit can cause you to fall, cry out, etc. 

Pining away - wasting away and doing nothing profitable for eternity…not for life, but for eternity.  Believing and obedience takes care of anger.  Dying or fasting to ourself - because we need God’s help and we need to let Him take control. 

Deny thyself.  Believe.  What God is telling me, showing me - He can give us miracles.
