To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 9.1–29 on March 2, In the year of our Lord 2018

By Don Ruhl

Jesus had taken three of His disciples with Him into a mountain and when they returned, He found people disputing with the other disciples that He had left behind. He asked what they were discussing. Someone in the crowd answered that the nine disciples could not cast a mute spirit out of a child. Then Jesus answered,

“O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to Me” (Mark 9.19).

How much has the Lord done to produce faith in us? He created the heavens and the earth and He created us. Do those not demonstrate His power? Why then do we doubt whether He can do something or not?


  • Do you have faith?
  • Do you believe the Lord will and has been, fulfilling all your needs?
