When we really begin to see things from Jesus’ point of view, we will follow Him.

“Jesus was going to Jerusalem”  – to be “betrayed”, “condemned to death” and to “come back to life” (Mark 10:32-34). Hallelujah! What a Saviour! “Teacher, we want you to do us a favour” (Mark 10:35) – This sounds so self-centred. What does Jesus say about this? – “Whoever wants to be great among you will be your servant. Whoever wants to be most important among you will be a slave for everyone” (Mark 10:43-44). How do we learn to live this kind of life? We learn it from Jesus – “The Son of Man … came to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many people” (Mark 10:45). “What do you want Me to do for you?” (Mark 10:51). Jesus asked this question in Mark 10:36. This time, the answer is for the glory of God – not the glory of man. Look at what follows this question – “Teacher, I want to see again … Go, your faith has made you well. At once, he could see again, and he  followed Jesus … ” (Mark 10:51-52). When we really begin to see things from Jesus’ point of view, we will follow Him. We will look to Him in faith. He will make us well – “It is well with my soul.” This will give us the strength that we need to follow Jesus.
